Have you ever heard a promo as lame as this? If Hackett was a republican and FOX news was running the promo for H&C , it would go something like: "As a veteran of the Iraq war, can we afford not to have Hackett in Congress?"

Atrios writes: "It's tempting to write it off as just some really stupid promo copy without some deeper meaning, but I really think it reflects some deeper pathology. Boomers like Matthews (59 years old, who knew) who didn't go to Vietnam and today's 101st Fighting Keyboarders seem to really have contempt for those who served."
