Delegate Gives 'Purple Heart Band-Aids'

Apparently, the party that thinks they have a monopoly on their support for veterans, doesn't mind mocking them...

"Convention-goers were handed bandages with purple hearts on them Monday night by a GOP delegate in a swipe at Democratic nominee John Kerry's war record.

The bandages were handed out by Morton Blackwell, a longtime GOP activist from Virginia, with the message: 'It was just a self-inflicted scratch, but you see I got a Purple Heart for it.'"

They should be absolutely ashamed of themselves. Once again, where is our Commander-in-Chief while our military's honor continues to be disparaged? Is it now ok to simply mock the Purple Heart, awarded to hundreds of thousands of veterans during this nation's history, because you dislike one man?
