Leonard,

Will you PLEASE put your comments in the first person when you make incredibly offensive and stupid sweeping generalizations...like assuming your entire audience perceive military wives are "a certain way" ...that they are all, what? Knee jerk Palinites from trailer parks????

I'm a flaming liberal who happens to have family members who are military spouses and soldiers...they are some of the deepest thinking, best educated, well read, democratic minded people I have EVER met.

I'm incredibly annoyed and disappointed by your typical white straight middle class guy assumption that everyone out here thinks like YOU.
