For the record, I so called his selection to this committee days ago.
Senator Pat Toomey responds to his selection to the committee:
“I am deeply honored for the opportunity to serve on this bipartisan committee and to be part of the important work we will be doing. In light of last week’s events, with the nation’s credit downgrade and the deep drop in the markets, it is all the more imperative that this committee do its job effectively and come up with a product that both tackles our debt crisis and can help revive our failing economy.
“Despite the difficulties ahead, I am committed to tackling this challenge and am hopeful that we can produce a proposal that seriously reduces our nation’s deficits and grows our economy. Throughout the debate over the debt ceiling, I stressed that we need a solution that achieves the dual goals of putting our government on a path toward a balance budget, and maximizing economic growth and enabling us to create the jobs we badly need. I remain committed to both of these vital goals.”
Senate Republican Leader, Mitch McConnell selected Toomey along with Senators Jon Kyl (R-AZ) and Rob Portman (R-OH) to the Super Committee.
House Speaker, John Boehner selected Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), Dave Camp (R-MI), Fred Upton (R-MI)
I’m going there: Sarah Palin projects a more presidential vibe in this video than the one currently occupying the White House and speaking in Arizona.

Tonight’s memorial had a campaign feel to it, must have been the free tshirt distributed to memorial attendees. It looks as though I wasn’t the only one who got that campaign tingle from the memorial:
Please save this date: Friday, October 1, 2010, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
You are invited to join us for a fun evening and book signing with Kerry Kachejian author of SUVs SUCK in Combat (a story of chaos & valor and the rebuilding of Iraq during a raging insurgency). It is a book to be proud of and one that I envy the first-time reader’s experience in reading. You’ll come away with a better understanding of the early years of our efforts in Iraq and even more appreciation for the men & women that served there.

Directions and/or map to the booksigning.
Date: Oct 1, 2010
From: 6:30-9:00 p.m.
Kerry is a native of West Chester, and he will attend with his sister Regina Curley. We hope that you will be able to join them there.
I’ve started reading this book and I find I can’t put it down. This is the story of Iraq ignored by the MSM in favor of body counts. You will walk away from this book with a greater appreciation of the crucial work of our men and women in uniform.
