An Iraq War Veteran Running for Congress on Political Pistachio Radio!

Today (Wednesday, August 8, 2007 at 7pm Pacific Time/10pm Eastern Time) is a special mid-week edition of Political Pistachio Radio. Our guest will be John Kanaley. John is an Iraq War Veteran that actually voluntarily extended his tour so that he may serve in Baghdad. In 2003 he served for Central Command in Qatar and Iraq; in 2004 John served with the Theater Support Command in Kuwait with additional assignments in Iraq; In 2005 he served in Baghdad with the Civil-Military Operations to assist with the Iraqi elections as well as serving as a Team Chief for future plans in Strategy, Plans, and Assessments (SPA) with Multi-National Forces, Iraq (MNFI). His second tour ended in October 2006. The seat in the 37th Congressional District in California is vacant due to the death of Juanita Millernder-McDonald, who lost her battle with cancer in April. John Kanaley is campaigning as a Republican for the seat which will be decided by special election on August 21. In addition to his military career he has also served in the Long Beach Police Department with 16 years of service. His Army career spans over 22 years as active military, National Guard, and Reserves. In the Army he is a Lieutenant Colonel. His purpose for running for Congress, according to his site, is to add support in Congress for the War on Terror from somebody who served in Iraq, support the GOP in its effort to regain control of Congress in 2008, ensure the concerns of Long Beach, California are heard in Congress, make the tax cuts permanent, and promote business at all levels throughout his district.

Then on Saturday the wild and crazy (and great) Atlas Shrugs will grace us with her presence! We will talk with her about her V-logs, her experiences with past guests on her Blog Talk Radio show (such as Mark Steyn, Tom DeLay, Robert Spencer, and so on), and about the War on Terror! It will prove to be a fantastic broadcast - don’t miss Political Pistachio when Atlas Shrugs pays us a visit!
