Well, That Settles That

Now there can be absolutely no doubt: The Republican party hates the troops, supporting them only to the extent that they're politically useful.

"Swift Boating" a marine corps major freshly back from Iraq because he dares to run against them is a violation of everything they claim to stand for, and proof of what they really stand for. It's analoguous to the apocryphal story of hippies spitting on returning GIs, except it's the party of their own commander in chief.

I wonder how many Marines back in Iraq are reading about this and thinking "These bastards don't deserve my service"?
