Jason Brown: A GOP Lawmaker Who’s No Chickenhawk

By Debbie Schlussel
We often hear the empty whines of the left that GOP office-holders are “chicken-hawks”–that they want everyone else to fight and die in their wars, while they allegedly don’t serve.
Well, no-one can say that about Missouri State Rep. Jason Brown, who represents Platte County, Missouri. On a one-year tour of duty in Iraq, Brown, a staff sergeant in the Army Reserve, was shot in the lung by a sniper during a patrol near Baghdad, Thursday. Like many reservists serving in Iraq, he is a small business owner with a family.
Bad news for liberals and Democrats: Brown is in very good condition and is running for re-election.

We hope he wins. He sounds like a true patriot who puts his money–and life–where his mouth is.
More on him here, here, and here.

What about the dozens of vets running as Democrats? Aren’t they “true patriots” too, or do you only respect *Republican* servicepeople who put their money and their life where their mouth is?
Seem to me you had to search pretty damn hard to find a Republican who served. That’s a shame for them, and puts your credibility at risk.
