Quotable: Tim Grieve on repugnant “patriots”

“The next time a Republican wraps himself in 9/11 or uses a soldier as a prop — the next time Bush watches a 9/11 movie with 9/11 families, the next time he invites the father of a fallen soldier to join him in throwing out a first pitch, the next time he participates in a staged chat with troops in the field, the next time his party holds its national political convention within shouting distance of ground zero, the next time the mother of a fallen soldier turns up in Laura Bush’s box at the State of the Union address, the next time Cheney suggests that questioning the president’s Iraq policy somehow equates to undercutting the troops — remember this: It’s the Democrats, not the Republicans, who do this sort of thing. Just ask Ann Coulter.
