Silky Pony plans to politicize Memorial Day

John Edwards observes no taboos. Under the heading “10 Things You Can Do Over Memorial Weekend to Support the Troops and End the War”:

Get vocal. Buy a bunch of poster-board and markers. At a picnic or with family and friends, make signs that say “SUPPORT THE TROOPS – END THE WAR.” Bring them to your local Memorial Day parade. Then take a digital photo of yourself and your family or friends holding up the poster and tell us about it. We’ll include it in a “Democracy Photo Album” on our site. (emphasis added)

Memorial Day used to be about remembering the sacrifices of wars past. Now it’s about politicizing parades.
