The War on talkin' about War...oh, and women

On Memorial Day, as I learned from one of Bill O'Reilly's "for kids" books, there is something that occurs but once a year (ok, twice).  GI Joe comes from the D.E.W. Line in his magical tank and bestows gifts upon military veterans for their service ("hope you weren't counting on the 'Dream Act' but here's the gift of PTSD Jose").  Hey, it's right there on page 1, 29, or 187, look it up.

But then, just like Christmas,  liberal grinchulist workers party member Chris Hayes had to ruin it by distinguishing veterans from the wars they were required to fight. How dare you question the expansion of Arlington Cemetery, sir -- have you a normal amount of shame?!

All our soldiers are heroes...until they are not Republican enough -- or do not perform to Ann Coulter's satisfaction. Same thing.

It's quite simple really.

But now that we've knocked shouted that issue down that we can get back to statements about our soldiers that are not to be criticized.

I hope we all can be properly contrite and move on from this. [cross-posted at Firedoglake]

The picture of that woman at the RNC convention is an immortal icon of ignorance and belligerance.

Exhibit A on how Repukes' "sacred principles" only apply to people they like.
If we didn't have a gutless press, mocking wounded veterans with Purple Heart band-aids would have their disgusting party run out of town in disgrace every time they pulled their "We support the troops while y'all are commie terrist-lovers" bullshite.

I don't think women should serve in combat either. Or on Navy ships of the line. It has nothing to do with Sacred Principles, either.
