Bandaid Politics

Forgive me if I repeat my outrage at the purple heart bandaids being passed out and worn at the Republican convention.

While the Kerry-Edwards campaign responded briefly saying that the bandaids mocked our troops, I just emailed them saying their response to these disgraceful little trinkets of "joy" needs to be much stronger. I said that we can't continue to be "swift-boated" by mockers who don't give a damn about their actions or their affect on our troops. I asked the campaign to demand that the Republicans remove them all - and that veterans are watching just how well the Repubs are "supporting the troops."
