I caught the videos of the Light Bringer, (A.K.A. our beloved president) taking his roadshow to Dover DE to greet the bodies of our latest K.I.A.s out of Afghanistan. Other than the fact that it was SUCH a photo op moment (The previous administration wouldn't even allow the press to film the coffins, not this bunch) the thing that chapped my ass the most was the military salute that he rendered to the coffins.
Now I get the commander-in-chief thing, and he has the authority to render the salute, but damn, I don't think that he has truly earned that right. As far as I know he has never even been a Boy Scout or even worn a uniform before, nor has he supported the military. (at least like I think he should have) I think that perhaps it might be appropriate if he placed his hand over his heart rather than salute.
Of course, I could be wrong. What do you guys out there in blog land think?
