Pelosi: We Support the CANADIAN Troops


From QandO, where they can tell a difference between U.S. and Canadian uniforms.

Hey, it could be worse...


She could have instead used the photo of her meeting with this weak-chinned ophthalmologist, with whom she may not be visiting with any more.

(Via Hot Air), where they note that Democrats have a history of not knowing what our uniforms look like.

The Human Ashtray is in for a rough weekend.

Now, this is quite honestly hearsay and probably irresponsible of me to continue as a rumor, but i hear that Pelosi doesn't nominate any candidates for appointments to US service academies... as a protest of "don't ask don't tell" i guess. (which is ironic in itself, but a whole 'nother discussion)

If that is true, I am really not surprised that she and her staffers/interns would have accidently let this slip.

Shorter right-wing blogosphere: ‘Democrats hate the military because some staffer used the wrong photo on a website. Clearly you must vote Republican.’

Just so we are clear- Bush and company opposed pay raises for our troops, calling them unnecessary. Yet you are in an uproar because Pelosi is increasing veteran’s benefits, but a staffer or webdork used a picture of a Canadian Officer.

Thank goodness the adults are in charge.

Democrats hate the military

Not necessarily. They are however, hasty fools for making such an egregious mistake.

Well, I suppose they could have used some Walter Reed pictures, but they likely intended to show what they want veterans' healthcare to be (i.e. like the Canadians have it) rather than what it is now. So, the question is, how do you know it was a mistake at all?
