What "Supporting the Troops" Means To The GOP

From Positive Blasphemy:

This cartoon just says it all. How dumb do you have to be to understand that Republican "support" of the troops is limited to slapping magnetic stickers on their cars. One of the problems with the Iraq situation is that there is no real buy-in from anyone who doesn't have a family member serving in the military. Talk and magnetic stickers are cheap. Would Republicans still be in favor of the war if we raised taxes by 2-300% to cover the costs of the "war on terror"?. Perhaps no business should be allowed to make a profit until, as Bush says, "we win"...whatever the hell that means. The ONLY people paying a cost for this war are those in uniform. And that's not morally right.
