Swearing Allegiance


Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) has just sent out a petition he’s asking people to sign, which reads vaguely like an oath of allegiance to Gen. Petraeus. The text of which reads …

To General David Petraeus,

Please know that we in Texas support you and all of the men and women serving our country with honor. We have entrusted you with a mission and respect the dignity you bring to our country and the job of leading our military in such a dangerous region of the world.

If you’d like to sign, you can find it here.

Late Update: As one reader notes, the ‘petition’ is on Cornyn’s campaign website so presumably he’s using it to build his fundraising mailing list.
