Ahhhh, yes. The ol' "attack the messenger" approach. But at least jla has the guts to do it to my face, unlike bmw.

Free Republic is absolutely pathetic when it comes to doing more than talk. I keep asking folks to prove me wrong. Not ONCE has anyone been able to do it. The D.C. Chapter put on an awesome event, just like last year, only this time they even spent money advertising it. People travelled in from CA, PA and elsewhere. And they still managed 70-100 people. Wow.

Yes, I chose to skip last weekend's rally, after Larry Bailey decided not to have a "Boot Murtha" booth. I figured attendance wouldn't top 200 (who knew I was being overly optimistic?!?), so I did a charity run instead. And have no regrets. If I never attend another "Support the Troops" event as long as I live, I'll still have accomplished more than 95% of the crowd at this forum.

Now run along and find a nice "penis" or "breast" thread somewhere.

I wonder how many people will decline your "invitation" to the Johnstown rally out of disgust with your smug attitude and obnoxious delivery. The number is much bigger than you think.

I'm betting some of those accomplishments were actually positive, too.

Was that the reason? I thought it may have something to do with keeping you away so you wouldn't drool over Irey.

I wouldn't know, I wasn't there and never will be at one of these events that seem to be nothing more than an opportunity for a lot of those in attendance to aggrandize themselves. Too bad Code Pink wasn't waging a counter-stand on the corner hold sign and shout protest, the ensuing melee would have been priceless.

so I did a charity run instead.

See my comment above, particularly noting the word aggrandize.

All you've accomplished and yet remain so unappreciated. Alas, but 'tis a Shakespearian life you lead, Cooper.

Evidently that charity run* you participated in was not for the benefit of the Good Samaritan Society.


* Coop was in a charity run in case anyone may have missed reading it.
