Military does support Bush

I’m not sure who Collins Ezeanyim is, since his name does not appear on The Battalion masthead, but he does prove that Aggie traditions live on.More than 25 years after I left, The Battalion is still populated by the extreme left of Aggie opinion, and most people writing for The Battalion do not have a clue.
Even The Washington Post knows the turkey centerpiece President Bush was holding was real, and a five-minute call to the Trigon would have informed Ezeanyim (and The Washington Post) that a “trophy turkey” is a military tradition. The bulk of the men and women are served from steam tables, and the unlucky few on duty during the meal get to eat the “trophy turkey” afterward.
The turkey story is a minor point, but it shows Ezeanyim’s laziness, disregard for the facts and preconceived opinions. It also makes it easy to ignore the rest of his ill-informed editorial, since I already knew it would sink to the same “standard” as the turkey story, and be just as easily refuted by five minutes of Internet research.
Sorry, Ezeanyim, but the men and women of the military will continue to support their own best interests, and vote to re-elect President Bush.Perhaps this time (unlike 2000), their votes will even be counted in Florida
