The Jackals have come out, re: Bergdahl

I would hope that this would be a moment similar to that where, when accusing the Army of being part of a Communist conspiracy, one of the Senators in the House Un-American Activities Committee responded to McCarthy by saying "Have you no shame?".

This guy was a member of the armed forces held captive by the Taliban for five years, the last American held captive by them, and instead of celebrating his release, the Right, especially the Tea Party has objected to his release and accused him of being a deserter. The Tea Party, and the Republican Party, don't "support the troops", they support their own policies, and if throwing the troops under the wheels of partisanship furthers their war with Obama they're more than willing to do it.
