Elitists Think Alike

Remember when John Kerry dissed the troops, implying that only uneducatable illiterates went to Iraq?

Remember the photo created in response by a grinning group?

Now it's Stephen King who demonstrates the same incomprehension, saying if you can't read, you have to Iraq.

Do the elites and elitist wannabes subscribe to a service or something? They might bother doing a little fact checking:

In summary, the additional years of recruit data (2004–2005) sup­port the previous finding that U.S. military recruits are more similar than dissimilar to the American youth population. The slight dif­ferences are that wartime U.S. mil­itary enlistees are better educated, wealthier, and more rural on aver­age than their civilian peers. [Emphasis mine]
