Bin Laden/4th of July Parade Float
CHESTERTON, Ind. A Fourth of July parade float depicting a shackled, bloodied Osama bin Laden has divided some residents between praising the display as patriotic and others who see it as un-American.

The float, which won the prize for most patriotic unit in the northwestern Indiana towns parade, featured a man dressed as Uncle Sam holding a leash that bound the hands of a bearded man in a robe and turban. The robe was splattered with fake blood because it was a leftover Halloween costume, said Penny Kozinski of Supporters of the Military, which sponsored the display.

2. I suppose you can look at it like a political statement, same as
an editorial cartoon, but it was in extremely bad taste, if you ask me. Just designed to rile up the war-mongers.
