Rep. Mark Kirk Runs Away From Answering For His Iraq Stance

Remember Rep. Thelma Drake running away from an Iraq Summer participant? Now, it's Rep. Mark Kirk's (R-IL11) turn.

YouTube: After being denied entry to a Kirk event despite buying a ticket,Iraq War veteran, Josh Lansdale, approaches the Congressman and asks him to explain his position on the Iraq War. From the video, it looks like this Iraq Vet is not going to get an answer anytime soon.

Odd that Kirk wouldn't want to speak to an OIF veteran, especially considering he claimed to be one.

Mike Stark of Calling All Wingnuts attended Rep Bob Goodlatte's (R-VA06) town hall meeting and videotaped him taking similar lumps. And BNF has Vet Mom Sue Dinsdale confronting Rep. Tom Latham (R-IA04)

I tell you, the netroots are going to make sure to turn up the heat this summer on these chickenhawks.
