Hawks, Doves, and Chickenhams Part II

I have been meaning to post about this Nightline piece saying how it is difficult to get performers to sign up for USO tours. The news report is a not-so-subtle swipe at conservatives because conservatives support the war, but are supposedly too cowardly to serve in it or even do shows for the troops.

For this Nightline piece, Sylvester Stallone is deemed to be a conservative, just for having played Rambo in the movies. Stallone has given money to pols ranging from Barbara Boxer to John Ashcroft, but he is not known for his politics.

The one good thing about the Nightline story is that it gives me a chance to link to my earlier piece on Al Franken's multiple trips (and multiple mentions of those trips) for the USO.
