190. you are making something out of nothing
in several ways in my opinion.

First off, I don't believe that if the Conasons and the non-Edwards DUers didn't make a thing out of this, it would be no thing at all, other than a sincere wish that honoring the fallen be folded in with the wish that there be no more fallen. Some vets have a problem we are told. Fine. That's there right. Though I never served, I grew up in the military - it was the only world I knew until I went to college - so please don't lecture me about what vets feel.

I have spoken with vets about this, including a pol very famous as a highly decorated vet, one who speaks for vets (and because he's a politician I am not going to name him until he says that it's ok to have him weigh in on this, even on a site like this)...and this vet-to-the-core simply can not believe that I was even asking him about this. He thought it was absurd that anybody had a problem.

As for Edwards past, who cares? Really, who gives a flying whatever.

Nobody is trying to say he was a rebel or a Young Republican. It simply does not matter, and you know that.

I repeat MadFloridians question: What are you trying to do?

This outrage at Edwards politicizing of Memorial Day seems to me to be the far more egregious politicization.

As my kids say: Peace. Out.
