Hugh Hewitt said on his show yesterday that he doesn’t understand why Andrea Chaknis, thinks it is “incongruous” that Harvard student, and track star, Sean Barrett, would join the Marines.

It’s easy. She thinks it’s incongrous because she believes the liberal hype that only those with no other prospects join the military. Barrett clearly has other prospects. It's incongruous that someone with other prospects would turn away from them and join the military. You don't take your last resort first.

What's incongruous to us, of course, is the idea that personal peace and affluence trumps the defense of the very nation which has made those prospects possible in the first place.
