They do hate the troops

National Review's The Corner --

No Disrespect [Mark Hemingway] soldiers who suffer from PTSD, but have Democrats ever met a vet that didn't suffer from it? My father's a retired Marine colonel and Vietnam vet, so I've met a few vets in my day and while it's not unheard of, it's pretty rare in my experience. So why do Democrats always bring it up? Are they trying to create the impression that somehow every soldier is wounded, even if they don't appear that way?

Leave aside the fact that going off to war with the possibility of killing or being killed probably has an impact. Just read the news and know about Traumatic Brain Injury. Too much for an armchair Iraq war booster to look up.
