We Weren't Alone In Noticing

When we wrote "Just Another Flake Who Doesn't Know His Place," we expected to be the only folks who commented on Bill Ritter's constitutionally unsophisticated claim that he was in command of active duty Colorado Guardsmen:

"They are under my command essentially," said [ Bill ] Ritter, who doesn't have a military background.

It looks like Rob Tornoe, a syndicated cartoonist, also noticed.

We are a bit disappointed because we have opined elsewhere that Mark Udall came closer to the Michael Dukakis model of a Modern Major General. Perhaps Udall and Ritter will invite Dukakis to join them in a rendition of the Gilbert and Sullivan classic:

For my military knowledge, though I'm plucky and adventury
Has only been brought down to the beginning of the century
But still, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
I am the very model of a modern Major-General
