So almost a week ago apparently Rush Limbaugh said "The U.S. Military is now Meals on Wheels. It always is with Democrat presidents."
My reaction to this is my usual one to far-right criticisms of the Democrats: if only. Why would turning the U.S. Military into Meals on Wheels be a bad thing?
(Of course, in reality it is a bad thing, as Chris Floyd discusses: "a system designed for war, for death, destruction and domination, will never be a fit instrument for humanitarian relief." But, you know, aside from that, why would it be a bad thing?)
