Fruits and Nuts

When New Jersey declared itself the Garden State it was not anticipating the produce of today…

New Jersey is collecting used bulletproof vests for U.S. troops in Iraq to use as armor for their vehicles, following complaints that soldiers were underprotected. Disgraced Former Governor (fruit) James McGreevy ‘s hand picked replacement, Acting Governor (nut) Richard Codey, on Thursday asked all local, state and federal law enforcement agencies in New Jersey to donate used vests that could be used to strengthen armor on military vehicles.

This was a pathetic attempt for Reuters Reporter, Jon Hurdle, at balanced reporting. If he wasn’t so biased he could have asked these questions:

1.) How is ‘body’ armor supposed to strengthen military ‘vehicles’?

2.) Did he ask any military personnel if there was a need for old body armor to strengthen vehicles?

3.) Was he aware that nearly all (800 out of 820 or 97%) of the questioning soldier’s unit’s Humvees are, in fact, armored — and that the guardsman was coached to ask his question by a pompous and self-regarding newspaper reporter?
