Jesus, anything for some publicity:
Families of fallen mourn at Kandahar
The families of nine Canadian soldiers killed in combat over the past four years made a solemn Easter weekend pilgrimage to Kandahar, ...
Fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and uncles took part in a special ceremony Saturday behind the task force headquarters at Kandahar Airfield, where the faces, names and dates of the 141 dead soldiers are etched into a granite memorial...
Patty Braun, whose son Cpl. David Braun was died in August 2006, said she believes Canadian troops should stay in Afghanistan in some capacity until the tide has completely turned.
The trip to Kandahar was an important personal journey, she said.
"I had to come to the place where my son was last alive. And I needed to smell it. I needed to see. I needed to taste it. And I needed to hear it," said Braun, who wore the shemagh desert scarf that belonged to him and was returned with his personal effects.
Christ, talk about self-obsessed attention hogs. Whatever it takes to get some media coverage, is that it? I've never seen people enjoying the deaths of their loved ones so much.
Oh, wait, that wasn't me, that was Ann Coulter:
Coulter lambastes 9/11 widows in new book
Sen. Clinton calls statements a ‘vicious, mean-spirited attack’
WASHINGTON - New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton lashed out at Ann Coulter for a “vicious, mean-spirited attack” on a group of outspoken 9/11 widows, whom the right-wing television pundit described as “self-obsessed” and enjoying their husbands’ deaths.
Coulter writes in a new book, “Godless: The Church of Liberalism,” that a group of New Jersey widows whose husbands perished in the World Trade Center act “as if the terrorist attacks happened only to them.”
She also wrote, “I’ve never seen people enjoying their husbands’ deaths so much.”
Cue people who were just about to tee off on me for my monstrous, unconscionable cruelty and appalling lack of compassion suddenly going very, very quiet as they frantically search for reasons why it was OK when Ann Coulter did it.
