First Kerry, now Rangel.
There really shouldn't be any doubt in anyone's mind why a lot of military think the average Democrat would rather spit on them than shake their hand.
On the other hand, if Charlie Rangel were on fire, there's quite a few soldiers who wouldn't even piss on him to put it out.
(update - in response to the snarky emails I've received: The Army didn't pay any of my undergraduate degree costs. I paid them all. The Army didn't pay any of my graduate degree costs. I paid them all. I have 100% of my Montgomery GI Bill benefits remaining, and will probably use none of them. So no, I haven't benefited from the Army educational benefits that Rangel says is the only reason soldiers join, so I can say that had nothing at all to do with my nearly 22 years of service.
And by the way, I can't wait to see his committee "prove" we are all a bunch of societal losers. First black soldier he should have in front of his committee - Gen(R) Colin Powell.)
