RABid yesterday, about Strickland fighting the DoD about proper equipment for Ohio National Guard members:

Gov. Mulligan feigns outrage about Ohio’s Nat’l Guard’s service in Iraq, spouting the tired leftist canard that the military is ill-trained and ill-equiped.

He also insultingly alludes that Ohio’s NG is soft, unfit, and in need of his protection from the enemy (i.e Bush and the Pentagon) despite assurances from the ONG’s adjutant general.

However, last August RABid quoted a news item and let this:

Blackwell said he is prepared to fight a tug-of-war with Washington over the use of Ohio troops in the future.

pass without comment. So, who’s really playing politics with our troops? Our governor, looking out for the best interests of Ohio citizens, or the astroturf blog who won’t criticize a Republican for the same thing they will criticize a Democrat for?
