Service Rationing

There have been serveral moments where Glenn Beck has dove head-first into the shallow end of the pool, but this has to be one of his crazier moments.

I don't feel that I'm going out on a limb with this one, but I find it hard to believe that the alleged Courts-Martial of the Navy Seals has anything to do with someone being punched in the mouth. There's just not enough evidence being presented in the media for that to be a legitimate reason to punish these guys. It does, however, fit nicely into the conservative meme that Obama is destroying the military. And that is, though you won't hear any conservatives admit it, patently false.

But all one has to do is just take a look at what Beck is postulating - as mass exodus from military service by anyone that thinks that Obama is damaging them. there isn't a clearer example of someone politicizing the American military than this. I'm not going to be holding my breath waiting for people like Sean Hannity, Oliver North, or Bill O'Reilly - who have all used the military in some fashion or another to hamfistedly prove a point - to distance themselve from Beck on this one.
As he's the literal star of the network right now, they dont' want to run the risk of getting on Beck's bad side.

It seems that some of the most wingnutty of conservative bloggers are beginning to shy away from Beck's hysteria.

I’d have a problem with this advice if it was given privately, let alone to millions watching on television. Men and women enlist in the volunteer service to defend America, not to pick and choose which Commander in Chief they follow. They’re professionals who serve with honor regardless of the politics of the day. If they feel as though they’re not getting the support they need, they will know it better than those of us sitting stateside arguing over politics and policy. They will not need us to suggest that they bail out of the military if those are truly the conditions under which they serve.

And if you care to sift through the comments section there you'll notice that the village natives are getting restless with people that express their displeasure with Beck - the infighting is starting to get worse.
