A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Democrats and retired generals: I'm watching some of CNN's coverage of the Democrat Convention and they highlighted the fact that the Democrats had lined up retired generals who support John Kerry -- including Wesley Clark.

I counted a grand total of nine. In the AP style guide, you don't even use numerals until you get to 10, so it would've been helpful for the newspapers if he'd managed to get just one more.

A couple of thoughts:

If Republicans make a point of parading ex-generals who support Bush across the platform during their convention, will the media play that as neutrally (if they even note it) as CNN did tonight? Would the Republicans get criticized for politicizing the military?

Is that the best Democrats can do? Nine? There have got to be several thousand retired generals, and nine is all they can come up with?
