"We Love the Soldiers"

Bill Kristol reported on Fox today that Lt Michael Murphy was from Long Island. He also observed that fewer Medals of Honor are awarded than Nobel Peace Prizes but the New York Times, Murphy's local paper, can't be troubled to report on his award. It is full of page after page of reporting on Al Gore.

The "we love the soldiers" line that liberals like Mark Udall are taking is far better than the reception my brother got when he returned from Viet Nam. He flew into San Francisco and couldn't get out of his uniform quickly enough for fear of being spit on.

That bit of personal history aside, the question we have for liberals is a simple one. If you love soldiers, why is it so important for you to attempt to conceal from the public their honorable service to their country?
