Rep. Wayne Gilchrest on the War

Reason has an excellent interview with Rep. Wayne Gilchrest (R-MD) in which he talks about the GOP, the war in Iraq, and what history can teach us.

The whole thing is excellent, but I especially enjoyed the stoic overtones in his final answer:

Reason: You don’t worry about another primary challenge from a Republican who thinks this war has to be won or those issues are important?

WG: I don’t worry about a primary challenge. It’s inconvenient. My eternal soul will last a lot longer than my short, pathetic political career.”
