Don't use the deaths of brave men as props for anti war message

Michelle Malkin:


Welcome to Memorial Day 2007. Here's a lesson in How Not To Honor a Fallen Soldier 101. Don't do what Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson did to fallen Marine Lance Corporal Aaron Austin:

Get his name wrong.

Exploit his death on the campaign trail.

Insult his mother by claiming she talked about money with you at his memorial service, which she vehemently refutes--and then refuse to apologize.


Talk about shameful. Couldn't he just apologize and shut up already? Why is Cindy Sheehan the only mother who gets "absolute moral authority?"


There is much more including the transcript from Meet The Press where Richardson is asked about the "controversy."
