I really don't get this. NBC and MSNBC apparently refuse to run ads thanking our troops. Watch the ads on the Powerline blog linked to. Are they perhaps offensive in their very innocuousness? Do they paper over the complexities by using such simple phrases as "Thank you"? Perhaps it is too controversial to say "We think you're heros!" Is NBC's position that they support our troops, but they find anybody saying "thank you" to them offensive? I think they should just come out and say "We do not support our troops. But of course, we support our troops."
Edwards is right. There really are two Americas.
