Anne's unspoken message -- Drinking bad -- Getting Shot at Good

Yet another out of context statement in Anne Northup's latest political smear against John Yarmuth says that he "supports lowering the drinking age".

Yarmuth didn't say he supported it, he said, "it is something we should consider". He then provides some points to ponder, such as the fact that this may lead us to have more control over drinking among that age, and perhaps even reduce the problems associated with underage drinking. He never says that he thinks every kid should be out getting drunk, or that the bars should be full of 18 year olds.

I find it ironic that Anne puts out an ominous ad about John Yarmuth's suggestion that there might be a benefit in lowering the drinking age, but seems not to have a problem with sending 18 to 20 year olds halfway around the world to fight in a fruitless war in Iraq.
