"Obama wants Marines to wear ‘girly’ hats."

“We don’t even have enough funding to buy bullets, and the DoD is pushing to spend $8 million on covers that look like women’s hats!” one senior Marine source fumed to The Post. “The Marines deserve better. It makes them look ridiculous.”
I asked a retired Marine friend of mine familiar with the workings of the Pentagon to comment on this development and he observed:
Mike -- I'll pass on a detailed response to this one, but will say that I do NOT believe BHO had anything to do with this idiocy.
Some flunkey on SecNav Mabus' staff is my bet.
Mabus, the former governor of MS is a died-in-the-wool uber liberal, and determined to gut the traditions of the Naval Service since they originated in a time when PC was not the dominant consideration that it is today.

Anything the Marxists can do to help fuck up the country....

But then really, they're not Marxists. They don't call themselves Marxists. They're probably just just good patriotic Americans who are simply misguided in they're attempts to help.

Continuously and without variance.

The new cover design is reminiscent of US Navy officer caps in the Spanish American War-WW1 era. Somewhere I have an image of Admiral Dewey wearing one.

I had been surprised by the Army's reversion to 1860s style blue uniforms and shoulder straps within the last few years, and the Coast Guard's adoption of the "bus driver" blue uniforms in the 1980s.

If is is not broken, why bother 'fixing" it? $8 Million would be better spent on ammunition or protective gear.
