John Edwards: Lefties Should Use Memorial Day To Pretend They're Patriotic

They should use the day to "reclaim patriotism." Question: Why does it need to be "reclaimed," as we are constantly told that they are the most patriotic people in America?

Isn't dissent the highest form of patriotism?

Gather in public. On Memorial Day, get your friends, kids, co-workers, neighbors, aunts, uncles, grandfathers, grandmothers, and anyone and everyone you know together to publicly support the troops and end the war. Be sure to check with your local authority for any permits you need for public gatherings. Contact local media to publicize your event. Before you get started, please take a moment of silence to honor the fallen. And during your event, make sure you conduct yourself respectfully—both for those serving in Iraq and the memory of the brave servicemen and women that Memorial Day honors. Share your plans here.

Question Two: If they're already so gung-ho patriotic -- and Edwards' checklist is a good run-down of "How To Behave Patriotically" -- why do they need to be told how to so behave?

If they're so patriotic, shouldn't they already being following Edwards' Five Easy Steps Towards Feigning Patriotism naturally?

Do men who find it easy to pick up chicks routinely consult Pickin' Up Chicks The Brian Dennehy Way for pointers and tips?

Or would you guess that the primary audience for such self-help books consists of men who really have no idea what they're doing with women?

So many questions the media could ask.

And yet-- they're all too busy defending David Broder from Glenn Greenwald's very special Important Action Alert and Pretty Vicious Rant.
