There is nothing funny about combat. Anyone who has ever been in the fight will tell you that war is not a joke or a subject for a punchline.
This was the case last week when the liberal media and several late night talk shows made light of an amendment I proposed to an annual defense bill to force a debate on the merits of integrating women in the infantry and special operations and therefore requiring they register for the draft. It was branded as a “joke amendment,” by one late night show host. Another called it a “sarcastic” exercise.
