Sometimes they actually say what they think

Washington, D.C. — Republican presidential candidate John McCain's family background as the son and grandson of admirals has given him a worldview shaped by the military, "and he has a hard time thinking beyond that," Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Ia., said Friday."I think he's trapped in that," Harkin said in a conference call with Iowa reporters. "Everything is looked at from his life experiences, from always having been in the military, and I think that can be pretty dangerous."

Dangerous? You know what's dangerous? Congressmen who think that having been in the military colors your thinking in such a way that it's "dangerous."

Good grief. According to this list, 31 of our Presidents served in the military. 11 did not.
