Tony Blankley on the Value of Sacrifice

Tony Blankley opens his latest article with an interesting comparison.
Just as our troops are fighting the terrorists in Iraq so we don't have to face them here at home, I watched the Democratic Party presidential debate on Monday so you wouldn't need to let those egregious people into your own living rooms. (Although, obviously, our troops in Iraq face deadly duty, while I only face deadly dull duty.)
Poor Tony Blankley, facing danger just like our troops, while sitting down watching TV. I don't think any of us can comprehend the sort of torture it must be for Blankley facing this sort of challenge.

Frankly I think we out to do a swap, and spare Blankely this suffering. Let's find some soldier in Iraq brave enough to take on sitting down and watching a debate. He can come back here and do Blankley's job, and Blankley can go over to Iraq, where presumably it's safer.

In case you are curious about Blankley's article; he spends considerable time on Edward's hair, which should tell you all you need to know.
