God Bless Our Yellow Ribbons (and all our SUVs and Hummers, too)

"Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime." - Adlai E. Stevenson

So here's an excellent diary on how not to support the troops.

And for more ammo and a bit of a shocker, check out conservative congressman Curt Weldon (R-PA) comparing Rumsfeld to Kim Jong-Il (transcript, audio), invoking the wisdom of Cynthia McKinney (D-GA), and calling administration smear tactics "unacceptable," "unimaginable, " and "un-American."

Just as a footnote, you don't suppose Mr. Weldon's sudden fit of courage has anything to do with that challenge from Fighting Dem and Iraq veteran Byran Lentz?
