These are some of the emails we're getting in reply to the post we did earlier today about the Joint Chiefs writing to the Washington Post, protesting a cartoon that defends our troops. I'd just like the Joint Chiefs of Staff to see the kind of America they're helping to create:
From: Jack HarrisNothing restores my faith in a just cause like threatening to kill all Democrats when the Joint Chiefs finally get the America they're fighting for.

Under no circumstances would I ever believe that your blog comes any where close to telling the truth. It is people like you that are hiding from the truth with your head in the sand ignoring the danger in this world directed toward this country each and every day from the radical fringe groups world wide. You are the same. You are an enemy of this country. Your day will come.
Then there's Tim, who doesn't seem to understand that the cartoon in question was defending the troops against a military brass that couldn't give a damn about their injuries:

Subject: Your body armor comment is just so much liberal bullshit....you don't care....
When I read about the concern some leftist expresses over body armor supply for troops, I can't help but laugh.
Come on, you people get all tingly every time there is a significant amount of US troops killed. You know, that funny feeling like you used to get when you were in a car that drove over a bump in the road really fast.
This Bush administration is your white whale, your entire reason for existence. And anything, including the death of American soldiers is just swell if, as you think, it will convince others of your viewpoint. Come on, you would give up a weekend a month to build IEDs if you could just figure out the postage, wouldn't you?
Keep scanning the skies for those black helicopters, wear your tinfoil hat proudly, and keep telling us of the evil right wing....
