Another mystery solved

Retired Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North -- you may remember him from that Iran-Contra affair you heard about on I Love the '80s -- said during a speech in Mobile on Thursday that he knows what's responsible for the U.S. military's sagging recruiting numbers.

An Iraq war that has claimed the lives of more than 1,500 American soldiers and counting? Nope.

The Pentagon's deployments of so many National Guard and Reserves units that the so-called "weekend warriors" now constitute 40 percent of full-time U.S. forces in Iraq? Nope.

That damned liberal media and their lies? You got it.

Well, glad we cleared up that confusion.

Did I try to screw the military out of recruits with my crazed liberal bias?

I don't recall.

Well, it would help if your bleeding heart would stop hating freedom.
