"And It's 1, 2, 3 ...

........ What are we fighting for?"

Okay, for all who need to keep slugging away in the trenches even on Friday, one more shot.

Those of us who remember a certain era know the next line in the song quoted above, "Next stop is Vietnam."

Now, of course it's Afghanistan, and, yes, incredibly still Iraq.  Uh ... Osama and Sadam are gone.  Time we were, too.

The difference between the 60s and now, though, is that at least the President who was all too willing to send others into a fight of dubious justification, was himself willing to stand-up and fight hard for profoundly just and tough causes here, like civil rights and the war on poverty.

Sadly, zerObama won't even seriously fight the Republican/Teacaner philosophy of anti-middle class economic stupidity.  He wants to compromise and get along with the enemy.  We can, we must do better.
