In the comments section of this post on the craziness that is Joni Ernst, a commenter wondered how it could be possible that the Tea-Partying Ernst could win a US Senate seat. The short answer: Because the local media in Iowa, particularly the Des Moines Register, make a point of not telling all they know about her.

On this Memorial Day weekend, I give thanks for Hugh Thompson, Jr., Glenn Andreotta, and Lawrence Colburn, who courageously and properly said “no” in the face of misguided fellow soldiers and superiors.
When I hear someone say “thank you for your service” to a member of the military, I think of these three, who embodied the best of what “service to your country” is, in the face of others who embodied that service at its worst.
