Edwards "Supports the Troops" by Politicizing Memorial Day
Demonstrating the utter tastelessness and opportunism that has come to define the Democrat Party when it comes to the war in Iraq, 2008 presidential hopeful John Edwards has launched a new website devoted to politicizing Memorial Day.
Employing the oft-repeated, but completely disingenuous, mantra of the anti-war left, the site's called Support the troops. End the War. The problem is prematurely withdrawing from Iraq would not "end the war," which extends far beyond Iraq's borders, and such efforts aren't really about "support for the troops," but rather manipulating their cause for political ends.
Lew over at Right in a Left World has all the details. Let's just say, he and other veterans are none too pleased at seeing Memorial Day be turned into yet another opportunity to undermine our military, and our country, in a time of war.
