Tonight, on the way home from seeing the movie “The Prestige” (a surprisingly good movie utterly destroyed by the last 15 minutes), I was listening to the local conservative radio station as usual when Dom Giordano (a local conservative talker) asked if the military press had any credibility.
I thought, “What a strange question for a conservative to be asking.” I was in the military and the military press hasn’t had credibility going back quite a long way. They’ve been heavily conservative for as long as I can remember and, for pretty obviously heavy-handed reasons. It’s not exactly a major surprise that the military press would actually limit what our soldiers can hear. Just ask liberal talk show host Ed Schultz about his experience with trying to get on Armed Forces Radio.
Anyway, I was then shocked to realize that Giordano was actually asking if the military press had any credibility because of their liberal bias! It turns out that this weekend each of the military papers will be featuring a story demanding the resignation of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. So now, even the military must be put down. Generals who spoke out vanished from view and now the military press is a haven of liberal, terror-loving traitors to our country.
As I mentioned a few weeks back, the pile of people supporting this fiasco of an administration is getting smaller with every passing day. Their latest whiff of hope was in trying to suggest that volunteer, decorated veteran John Kerry meant to bash our troops. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not a big Kerry supporter and I don’t plan to support him in 2008, but I also am bright enough to realize exactly what and whom he was criticizing with his comments. Suggesting he was insulting the troops is like suggesting that Ronald McDonald has come out against McDonaldland Cookies.
The bottom line is that those left screaming about the rest of us who don’t get it, don’t get it. It’s time to pack up your shrinking tent and go home.
