The Patriotic Americans At NBC

NBC reversed its decision not to air the Freedom's Watch ad thanking our troops for their valiant overseas service.

So what.

The network already disgraced itself. They're merely reacting to the public's backlash.

From E-1 to O-10, the men and women serving our country embody the very best of America. Our soldiers should never have been subjected to smug and condescending NBC executives making one pitiful excuse after another for why they shouldn't be thanked.

Commissioned and non-commissioned officers care deeply about the soldiers they lead. They don't just care about you as a soldier, but as a human being. They will do everything they can to help the soldiers they lead realize personal and professional excellence.

Today, America's finest and bravest wear a military uniform. The institutions our soldiers represent have aspired to and achieved a greatness unparalleled in American history. We can never thank them enough, or celebrate their sacrifices enough.

Hillary The Victim, Again

The New York Times must be edited by a pop psychologist. Today, the Times features a front page, above-the-fold story by Mark Leibovich that reads like an evaluation of a psychiatric ward patient. "Clinton Talks of Scars While Keeping Guard Up" is the headline. Dr. Leibovich's descriptions of Hillary vary,and include:

Struggled to keep her composure, triumph of her self-possession, the person so often encased in armor, not too hardened to inspire, catalogs her wounds, guarded by nature, constant challenge to protect herself emotionally, difficult adjustment, thin-skinned and took criticism hard, doubting nature, her defensiveness, cold realist, variously combative or stoic, deeply wounded and crying and blaming herself.

I needed an oxygen mask and a bottle of Tylenol after reading this tedious nonsense.

Huckabee: Some Of My Best Friends Are . . .

Gov. Huckabee on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace:

Chris Wallace: But, Governor, forgive me. I don't think that's right. All the way back in 1985, this wasn't political correctness. The Centers for Disease Control back in '85, seven years before you made your statement, said that AIDS could not be spread by casual contact.

Gov. Huckabee: There was also the case of Kimberly Bergalis, who testified before Congress in 1991. She had contracted AIDS from her dentist . . . I knew people who had AIDS. I had a close friend who died of it in the 1980s. He was a hemophiliac. He contracted it through a blood transfusion. I had other friends of mine, one of whom passed away — he was, in fact, homosexual.
