What's The Difference Between A "Grief Pimp" And A "Noble Mother Whose Child Made The Ultimate Sacrifice"?
Answer: The "grief pimp" doesn't support Bush's policies in Iraq, while the other mother does. It's sad that both mothers lost their sons in the meat grinder known as post-Saddam Iraq. But isn't it interesting that the Bush-questioning mother's motives are called into doubt, whereas the Bush-supporting mother's motives are automatically taken at face value? (UPDATE: Steve Gilliard has a good post on the very different reactions of two Bush supporters to the field of memorial crosses set up at Crawford.)
