500 retired flag officers are sponsoring an ad in the Washington Times today endorsing Mitt Romney for President.
In plain terms the officers, who paid for the ad themselves, said they support Mr. Romney: “We, the undersigned, proudly support Governor Mitt Romney as our nation’s next president and commander-in-chief.”
The ad then goes on to list all of the officers, in alphabetical order, in four columns of print.
OK, that’s great, but where have you guys been the last four years? It seems to me that 500 flag officers endorsing Romney could have done a lot more by spreading out across the country talking for him than a simple list in a conservative newspaper. But, I’m sure it’s just a way to piss off Marty Dempsey who thinks we should all sit down and shut up when we’re talking about his boss.
Not on the list is Colin Powell, of course, because he’s his own man who votes his conscience (snickering here).
In other not-news, John Hawkins of Right Wing News polled conservative bloggers yesterday for our choice, and *surprise!* 92.6% of us are admitting that we’re voting for Romney and we expect Romney to win.
So I guess the election is all sown up since everyone you expect to vote for Romney is still voting for him.
By the way, by popular demand, TAH will be live-blogging the election returns tomorrow night, so mark your calenders.
