    but our constant message -- at least, as I read Markos' message -- has been that that their hypocrisy is tantamount to treason, and that if they truly were patriotic, they would be enlisting.

    So why not actually encourage them to enlist, using language they are familiar with?

    I figure it will solve two problems:

    1, that it will force the Bushites to end the fiasco faster, since now their own kids will be in harms way, and,

    2, it will take the Young Rethugs out of our hair for a while, and maybe teach them a thing or two about reality.

    •  Counterfactuals don't solve anything (none)
      No ad will get the the YRs to enlist in any significant numbers.  Their hypocrisy is irremediable.

      They aren't our target, anyway, because most of them are unconvincible of anything we believe in.

      No, our target is those who have not drunk the kool-aid, who can still be convinced that they have been sold a pig in a poke by sleazebags chickenhawks.

      Snark lays out in sharp relief the YRs hypocrisy - and their parents' - and that's what we need to convince the persuadable middle.
