Memorial Day

Well John Edwards is still planning his Memorial Day "actions". The idea is to send him money, buy his t-shirts, and hold "support the troops - bring them home" rallies. Which are really John Edwards rallies. You would have expected him to call it off when it was pointed out that using Memorial Day for political advantage was in poor taste. I suspect they know it's tacky but they don't much care. They have tacked this on at the end of the announcements though:

And remember on Memorial Day, (Monday May 28th) the most important action we can take is to solemnly honor the fallen and offer our appreciation for their sacrifice.
It's like a legal disclaimer. Stick it in at the bottom so you can point to it when people (rightly) accuse you of disrespecting Memorial Day and the heroes it honors.
