A Hero For Senate

In Loudoun, and the southern part of the Town of Leesburg, there's a choice for Senator on November 8th. On the one hand, you have a right-wing ideologue who believes that married men should be allowed to rape their wives.

On the other hand, you have an actual American hero.


The above is from a letter of commendation that Shawn Mitchell received from his commanding officer in Iraq. If you cannot quite read it, it explains how Shawn drove an unarmored vehicle through hostile fire while operating the radio, keeping his cool the entire time.

The entire letter is worth reading. Shawn is worth voting for next Tuesday.
