    K, as a former journalist, I can assure you that very few people in a newsroom have ever served in the military. Only a slightly higher percentage do not look with disdain upon anyone who has ever served in the military. So these aren't the sorts of mistakes that "hurt" them, if you will. If they'd, say, mistaken the date of birth for Martin Luther King, Jr., or the spelling of the name of a famous feminist, now that would be an issue.

    From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bud_Day
    and http://www.answers.com/topic/bud-day

    "During the 2004 U.S. presidential election, Day appeared in a Swift Boat Veterans for Truth advertisement, saying "How can you expect our sons and daughters to follow you when you condemned their fathers and grandfathers?" Following that election, Day signed on as President of the newly formed Vietnam Veterans Legacy Foundation, which absorbed virtually all the Swift Both Veterans for Truth members and officers."

    Why not? The Swift Boat goons did it throughout the 2004 Presidential campaign.

    So what? Murtha is a tool, but you don't see anyone denigrating his service. Many conservatives think McCain is a fool, yet take nothing away from his sacrifices, for that's what they were. Then again, we really do support the troops.

    When the 'troops come home' they have every right to partake in the democratic process, that they sacrificed to uphold.

    Libs only honor vets they agree with and only then until they are done using them. Otherwise, they absolutely detest them.

    I've seen nothing for many years to make me think you are wrong.

    The conditions at Walter Reed tells me how the Bush administration treats veterans.

    Actually it tells all of us how generations of presidents from both parties treat veterans.
