On the phrase "I Support the Troops"
The blog Sharp Sand (by Joseph Duemer, prof at Clarkson University) has an interesting take on the phrase "I Support the Troops."
Take a gander.
He brings to mind King Harry's lines "Every subject's duty is the King's, but every subject's soul is his own" (granted that Shakespeare writes about a king - Henry V - who actually went into the battles with his troops ... but still).
