Still a uniter?

A National Review Online article linked on the Bush-Cheney campaign's official web log has liberal bloggers up in arms today. A post about first-responders supporting Bush showcases the article by Jack Dunphy, a police officer for the president. Here's a particularly enlightened section of the piece: "Generally speaking, the likelihood that a firefighter will vote for John Kerry is inversely proportional to the number of fires he has actually fought. Witness all those T-shirted 'Fire Fighters for Kerry' you saw at the convention. A little soft around the middle some of them were, weren't they? Do you think some of them could haul a hose pack up 50 flights of stairs? I'm not betting on it. I'm guessing the only fires many of them have seen lately were at IAFF barbecues."

Too bad the media is dividing the country.
