So is John Althouse Cohen, and it's hard to argue with this observation:
"I've got a bracelet." "I've got a bracelet too!" Are these serious adults running for president, or is this summer camp?
Yeah, McCain and Obama aren't bad guys, but it's hard to believe that these two are the best that a country of 300 million can produce.
I suppose John didn't like the way the debate was going and so is trivializing it generally. It's unfortunately true that when people are gone what you have is momentos and the ideals of their lives. I suppose he has honored dead, and I would allow it to the mother of this soldier and allow it to us to honor his existential choice.
