I don’t know anything about this guy, except that after 9/11 he gave up a $3.6 million NFL football contract and enlisted in the army. He was “an exceptional student with a 3.84 grade point average through college and graduated summa cum laude with a degree in marketing” who died yesterday in Afghanistan. This was just announced and there isn’t much news yet about what happened.
I don’t know if he was a rabid right-winger, or a Democrat, and it doesn’t matter. (I guess it does matter because if he was a Democrat the Republicans are going to start smearing him now.)
