Omigod! Benedict Arnold Was Against Climate Change Too!

Another mindless, hate-filled, name-calling Republican - this time, Pennsylvania State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe - has blasted a group of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans advocating against climate change as
"traitors" who are "promoting the leftist propaganda of global
warming." Jeez, can't the GOP find any normal thinking people who happen to be conservatives? Part of Operation FREE, the veterans
are in the midst of a 21-state bus tour to educate people about the
links between global warming and national security. Their schedule is here.

"I'm here to stand up and say as a member of Operation FREE that I'm
a veteran and I ain't no traitor," said combat veteran and Pennsylvania Rep. Bryan Lentz. "This is not a
partisan issue."
