No Plastic Turkee for Bush This YearInstead of making a surprise trip to Iraq, he called ten members of the armed forces:
President Bush called 10 members of the armed forces from California to Iraq Thursday to wish them a Happy Thanksgiving and thank them for their service.Uhm, that's nice, but I wonder how many of these handpicked few were vetted for their political preference?
Meanwhile, the rest of the troops spent another year away from their loved ones:
Kruse left Camp Fallujah on Wednesday for a multiple-day mission to hunt for roadside bombs and said he wouldn't have time to do much Thanksgiving celebrating. A native of Huron, S.D., he will likely still be in the field when he turns 21 Saturday.Here's to hoping they stay safe to see future Thanksgiving holidays with their families soon.
