Americans Love the Military

What are the three institutions which liberals and Democrats loathe the most? Judging from the constant harping about imaginary racism from police, a never-ending quest to find another scandal to bludgeon the military over the head with, and the paranoia over an impending theocracy, they shouldn't be very pleased with this:
The military topped the poll with a 74% confidence rating, with the police at 63% and organized religion at 53%.
Is that truly surprising, considering the gargantuan task the military performs and the sacrifices our soldiers make for the good of their fellow countrymen? And you wonder why the liberal elitists are considered out of touch with mainstream America. Not only that, but confidence in the media, that liberal stronghold, has plummeted as well, much to their chagrin:
Those having a "great deal" or "quite a lot" of confidence in newspapers dipped from 30% to 28% in one year, the same total for television. The previous low for newspapers was 29% in 1994. Since 2000, confidence in newspapers has declined from 37% to 28%, and TV from 36% to 28%, according to the poll.
I suppose Dan Rather can be the first on the list to blame for that.
