Mark Steyn is such a clever, witty writer, I don't know how he manages to be as prolific as he is.
One of his best points: "Whatever he may or may not have intended...what Kerry said fits what too many upscale Dems believe: that America's soldiers are only there because they're too poor and too ill-educated to know any better. That's what they mean when they say 'we support our troops' – they support them as victims, as children, as potential welfare recipients, but they don't support them as warriors, and they don't support the mission."
And the conclusion: "The Left still doesn't understand that it's the soldier who guarantees every other profession – the defeatist New York Times journalist, the anti-American college professor, the insurgent-video-of-the-day host at CNN, the hollow, preening blowhard senator. Kerry's gaffe isn't about one maladroit Marie Antoinette of the Senate but a glimpse into the mindset of too many Americans."
As always with Mr. Steyn, it's worthwhile to read every paragraph of his column.
