If memory serves me right, Stirling Newberry is one of the better known names from the Daily Kos community. Recently, he left the world of politics behind to move on to a new chapter in his life, bidding farewell to the community he had been such a well known part of.
But the call of battle is tempting, and even those who have left politics behind find themselves compelled to answer its siren song.
Returning from self-imposed exodus, this week's Challenger is Stirling Newberry.
Iron Blogger Republican, Dan Champion, you have been challenged to the field of battle. No Iron Blogger has lost their first battle in Iron Blog history - may you stand strong and keep the honor and glory of my Iron Bloggers intact.
The talking heads all say this election will come down to only two things. In our first seven battles, we have touched upon one of them, with topics like Battle Rumsfeld and Battle Torture
, that being the War on Terror. But we have not yet touched upon the other. Until now.
The Topic for the Battle is this:
Bush Tax Cuts
Are they growing our economy and creating jobs? Are we on a path to recovery because of them or in spite of them, or are we really recovering at all?
Let's see what our combatants have to say.
