Well, my initial reaction to the whole Purple Heart BandAid thing was kind of “Yawn. More demagoguery from the Republicans… NEXT!”
But the more I think about it, the more it really winds my stem…
Because of fat, smug morons like this:
Reported on MSNBC earlier today:
MSNBC Correspondent Chip Reed: What is that on your chin?
Pat Peel-Delegate from Texas: I have a purple heart, I hurt myself this morningÖ uhhÖ swimming a river I think it was.
The screen grab:
“Oh, it’s a Purple Heart. I hurt myself this morning. I got my arms blown off riding in an under-armored Humvee. Tee-hee!”
