Of course, if you did find that ONE honest Democrat (I’m sure there’s one in there O.R.) that would vote for body armor, it’s really not what the troops want anyway so he still loses, is that right?

And funny how, in this part of the thread, in which there’s been some discussion of demonizing opponents, you’ve decided that of course I have the worst possible motives.

First off, I didn’t make the claim that Dems would vote against the body armor.

Second, my point about more armor not always being better was… well… factual. Sorry if you don’t like it. Delta operators, for instance, deliberately eschew the heavy “battle rattle”, and even Kevlar helmets, because they think it slows them down too much. It just… depends. See? Nuance.
