Mark Kennedy reinforces Michael Moore's point

MSNBC has Lisa Myers doing brief coverage of objections to Fahrenheit 9/11. We see Congressman Mark Kennedy, a Republican from Minnesota but not my district, so I haven't had the pleasure of voting against him, being asked by Michael Moore to volunteer to send his children to Iraq. Moore's point is that only one member of the federal legislature has a child serving in Iraq. Mr. Kennedy tells us that he told Moore he had a nephew going to Iraq, but this was left out of the film.

Seeing this, I felt a little embarrassed for Kennedy. By bringing his nephew into the deal, he implicitly acknowledges that it matters whether or not the members of Congress send their own children to war.

"Reality" is hitting the fan.
