You Know You're a Republican When...
You fire someone for supporting the troops.
From a North Jersey Record editorial:
Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., lost his post as chairman of the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs this week for the worst possible reason: He spoke out loudly against cuts in veterans programs at a time when House GOP leaders - and President Bush - were touting the party's wartime support for the troops.
Next time you see someone driving around with a "support the troops" ribbon on their car, let them know what Republicans think of the troops.
