Ungodly Politics

"Announcing your plans is a good way to hear god laugh." - Al Swearingen

I wonder why I even bother thinking the Republicans have sunk to their lowest level yet. They always find a new depth.

"Convention-goers were handed bandages with purple hearts on them Monday night by a GOP delegate in a swipe at Democratic nominee John Kerry's war record.
The bandages were handed out by Morton Blackwell, a longtime GOP activist from Virginia, with the message: 'It was just a self-inflicted scratch, but you see I got a Purple Heart for it.'
Kerry won three Purple Hearts, a Silver Star and a bronze star for his service in the Vietnam War. A group calling itself Swift Boat Veterans for Truth has been attacking Kerry as a liar through campaign ads and media interviews, but Kerry's wartime experiences have been backed by crewmates and official records.
'It is inexcusable for a delegate to mock anyone who has ever put on a soldier's uniform,' said Democratic Chairman Terry McAuliffe. 'It is inexcusable to mock service and sacrifice.'"
Yes, mocking a veteran's wounds is good politics for the Republicans. Why do they hate America?
