In her opinion piece in today's NY Times, Maureen Dowd totally loses me at the second paragraph: "Military guys are rarely as smart as they think they are, and they’ve never gotten over the fact that civilians run the military." Don't they say anything in J-school about not making idiotically insulting overgeneralizations unless you happen to be working for a tabloid that specializes in such BS?
Not that what the general did wasn't pretty dumb. But two wrongs don't make a right, and two stupids don't make a smart.
