Operation Yellow Elephant Update

Sticker_3Max Blumenthal talks to College Republicans, and asks them why they aren’t enlisting.  The responses are what you would expect: “a nagging football injury”, “my ex-hippy parents don’t want me to”, etc.

Then there is Cory Bray, a senior at at U.Penn’s Wharton School of Business.  From the bar at a college Republican party, Bray brayed:

"The people opposed to the war aren’t putting their asses on the line"

Nice observation, Cory.  I also note that anti-abortion people aren’t having abortions.  But your keen insight begs an obvious question: Why aren’t you, who support the war, putting your ass on the line?  Care to respond, Cory?

"[B]ecause I had the opportunity to go to the number-one business school in the country, and I wasn’t going to pass that up."

I see.  So people who OPPOSE the war should be fighting it, so that people like you who SUPPORT the war can go to B-school.  Makes sense.

But Cory went on:

"We’re the ones who stand up for what we believe in. The College Democrats just sit around talking about how much they hate Bush. We actually do shit."

Mmmmmm.  What “shit” does Cory do?  Googling him gives us some insight.  For one thing, he sells Bush T-shirts in bulk, and creates disturbing (and lame) “Use Kerry For A Baseball” internet games.

And while I’m sure that programming silly computer games and being a pro-Bush junior capitalist is important, it pales in comparison to those who actually—really actually—do shit.
