May each of you have the heart to conceive, the understanding to direct, and the hand to execute works that will leave the world a little better for your having been here. -- Ronald Reagan

Colonel Martha McSally: Straight Talking Conservative Republican

Colonel Martha McSally has announced she’ll be running for congress in the special election to replace retiring Gabrielle Giffords. She’s a combat veteran, fighter pilot, that in 2002 challenged and won against Department of Defense rule that women going off base in Saudi Arabia had to wear Muslim clothing, the face and head scarf and all that.

Not only was she a fighter pilot, she was a squadron leader. She has a Master’s Degree in Public Policy from Harvard’s JFK School of Government. She’s a triathlete and has climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro.

She’s a Republican, pro-second amendment, pro-life, and as far as I can tell so far, a conservative, not a RINO.

And she has that military way of plain speaking:

The Democrats had been thinking they have enough of the sympathy vote to keep Gifford's district, but if McSally follows up on her stated intention of running, and announces she's in the race, the Dems may lose yet another seat.
