Brian is obviously not the sharpest knife in the drawer, judging from his statement on July 8, 2009 that fewer Swedes and Finns suffer from Alzheimers because "they marry other Swedes … Finns marry other Finns, so they have a pure society. In America we marry everybody, we marry Italians and Irish." But as anyone who served can tell you, there's plenty of room in the ranks for people who aren't geniuses. And he might have learned to have a little more respect for people of diverse backgrounds. But, he's a chickenhawk, so he didn't get the advantage of having his horizons expanded.

UPDATE: In the Spring of 2008, Kilmeade defended the Bush administration's opposition to the new Webb-Hagel G.I. Bill, arguing that because today's soldiers volunteered, they don't deserve the benefits earlier generations received.
