  1. The Truth About Little Women Carrying Big Wounded Men in Combat
    Conservative pundit George Will made this case on ABC’s This Week Sunday, claiming:
    “You’re 6’4″, 240-pound Marine, and you’re injured, and you need a Marine next to you to carry you back to safety, and the Marine next to you is a 5’4″ woman who weighs 115 pounds. It’s relevant.”

    Remind me again, how long did Will serve in the marines? Has anyone else noticed the predominance of chicken-hawks among the conservative elite?
