Well, there’s not much more that I can say about this that John Cole hasn’t said already. And I think Blackfive is about ready to explode (easy, guy). Dennis Kucinich is either too stupid to realize just how much he has
infuriated offended disgusted most members of the military and a good portion of civilians (gee, I just can’t find a word strong enough to convey what I feel without getting really nasty and possibly crossing that line regarding verbal threats to presidential candidates), or he simply does not care. It could be both.
Dignity at death, like many other types of dignity, is something for which the Left has no definition. First, there was the Wellstone memorial service. Then, there was the uninformed whining about President Bush’s refusal to make media circuses out of the funerals of the military dead from Iraq/Afghanistan by gracing them with his presence and then the additional whining because he refuses to allow others to attempt to do the same. (Again, these people want to act as though they actually care whether the average military member lives or dies. They obviously don't care how the members are interred, so what's the problem? Oh I forgot: BDS.)
Are we surprised? Death and life are meaningless to these people.
Soldiers that lived their lives and laid them down for noble purposes? Families that want privacy and dignity for their loved ones' interments? What the hell is that goofy sh** about? /Leftist
This thing, this abomination (that's the word) from a presidential candidate, no less--albeit one that’s moonbattier than Ralph Nader; frightening thought—is just the next step down into the place where honor and respect mean nothing.
It’s up to us to let scum like Kucinich know that he cannot use the bodies of our friends, loved ones and comrades-in-arms to fuel his meager aspirations.
