Anti Military Simpsons

I hate to say this, but I think I'm through watching the Simpson's. In a lame reverb of JFK The Lessor's stupid ramblings last week, the writers of the Simpsons saw fit to imply that Army recruiters have trouble getting even the stupidest young people to enlist. Hysterical that, on the day after Veterans Day. Like most things from the left coast, the Simpsons have always been left leaning, which is fine- some of my best friends are liberals. To literally add insult to the various injuries suffered daily in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere is just plain wrong. They should be ashamed, but probably never will be.

"Lighten up, Francis."

It's a friggin' cartoon satire that has been skewering both left and right hilariousy for almost 20 years. If you are going to stop watching the new episodes it should be because the show long ago jumped the shark and the quality has dropped severely.

Dexter, that too. I don't mind them skewering whomever they please, I like it when they show Dracula as a member of the GOP star chamber - I find that funny. But half joking that only the stupid serve while those in service bleed and die is not or worthyy of my patronage. When I enlisted more than a few blue bloods acted as if I was sentenced for a crime or worse suggested that what I was doing was unethical because of where Reagan might send me. I remember a Weslyan weiner asked me what if they sent me to Central America and they ordered me to kill innocent civilians. I said I wouldn't do it and suggested that I would be in a better position to effect moral policy as a grunt in Bumphucsville than any number of cermics majors holding candles.
