Girly-Men or Manly Men?

We all know that the Democrats are all girly-men and weak on defense, right? Their cravenly “peace at any cost” mentality leaves our country vulnerable to attack at any moment. This is, of course, fact!

We also know those brave hearty men of the Republican Party will protect us and lead us valiantly to victory over our evil foes! We MUST trust their judgment in martial matters without question! Our sons and daughters serving in the military are most assuredly in trustworthy hands!

But, please don’t take my word for it. Let’s look at the military records of members of both parties distinguishing the men from the boys:
