An email is making the rounds, and being quoted in blogs, that lists Republicans and Democrats and whether they served in the military. Today I saw it quoted by Steve Gilliard, who in turn was quoting Kos diarist jgkojak, who commented, "I am sure this one has been around, but I had never seen everything together in one place."
I have seen the list before. I'm almost certain the email list was copied, though not verbatim, from the Who Served? page in AWOLBUSH.COM.
The big difference is that the AWOL Bush list mentioned many more Repubs who served. I think it's about 2:1 Dem:Pubs. If the country knew that, it could fundamentally change the way the two parties are seen. Dems are less eager for war because they've seen it.
