Unclear on the concept

“Could you picture Davy Crockett at the Alamo looking at his Blackberry getting a message from Congress? ‘Davy Crockett, we support you. The only thing is we are not going to send any troops.’ I’m sure that would really be impressive to Davy Crockett.”

–- Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo), 2/13/2007

Confidential to Rep. Akin...Davy Crockett lost at the Alamo. Also, Crockett was a former Congressman. How many pro-Iraq War congresscritters have left their seats to serve in the war they believe in so much?
