"Born Fighting" - Campaign Finance Reform?...

C.F.R


"In his first work of nonfiction, bestselling novelist James Webb tells the epic story of the Scots-Irish, a people whose lives and...."

Anybody notice how fast Jim Webb stated that "Born Fighting" was a term used to describe Scots-Irish people after Senator Allen referred to "Born Fighting" as Webb's campaign motto during the recent debate? Earlier today before the debate a friend pointed out to me the motto "Born Fighting", which is used in the Webb campaign and is seen on many signs all over the place, is also the title to one of the books written by Jim Webb. He also questioned if this is a violation of the Campaign Finance Reform that went thru awhile back by promoting the campaign in a indirect way...

I also found it interesting that there was talk of limiting the use of the "Born Fighting" a few weeks back by the campaign and that it would not be used anymore. And now Webb is quick to state that it is a term to describe Scots-Irish people when used during a campaign debate. Another interesting thing I found was that if you go to James Webb.com website you will find a full description of Webb's books and links to buy this same book alongwith a link to the Webb for Senate website...
