Guard Duty

I wonder how much of this is “giving the benefit of the doubt,” vs. the general public just being a lot more familiar with the National Guard than your average political reporter.

From watching the press questions over the last couple of weeks, I’m fairly well convinced that the “journalists” covering the Bush Air Guard story don’t have the faintest idea how the Guard and Reserves actually work.

I’ll bet you there aren’t three reporters on the White House beat who have a friend or relative in the Guard.

UPDATE: Chris Muir at Day By Day has a typically-funny take on one of John Kerry’s National Guard cracks.
