After watching the video of the incident with the uniformed soldier at YearlyKos, I have to say that it seems like less of a big deal than it did when I read about it. The audience isn’t really behind Jon Soltz when he yells at the guy; they just sit there dumbfounded. And since Soltz warns the soldier (before his question begins) not to say anything political in uniform, “for or against,” the answer to my question — Would the reaction have been different if a uniformed questioner had been assenting to anti-war orthodoxy rather than dissenting from it? — may be that it wouldn’t, in fact, have been much different. When asked later, the questioner doesn’t deny that he’s breaking the rules. I don’t know for sure that he is — I’ll leave it to the milbloggers to hash that out — but it’s probably unfair to blame anyone else in the room for Soltz’s freak-out.
