I’ll keep this short and sweet.

If you watch the video of Jean Schmidt’s appearance on Hardball last night, you will notice she is wearing two buttons.
The buttons are images of a soldier and a marine, presumably two servicemen killed in Iraq.

Here’s a screencap:

Now, I would like to say that I currently have no way of knowing if these servicemen are actually dead. It’s also possible that Schmidt has the families’ permission to use these images as campaign props.

Even if the above is true, WTF? Has this woman no shame? What kind of a complete fucking asshole hides behind the images of dead servicemen in order to sway public opinion, while at the same time questioning the service of a true patriot like Paul Hackett? Did I just ask and answer my own question?

IMHO, this should be investigated. We should find out who these servicemen are, and we should alert as many news organizations as possible about this shameless and disgusting exploitation.

OTOH, maybe I’m making a mountain out of a molehill. What do you guys think about this?

Personally, I wouldn’t know where to start on this, so anyone and everyone who thinks this is a story please take the ball and run with it.

(I’m swamped with summer course work, at present, and don’t have the time, myself.)
