I hate being behind the curve, but I usually find myself there. Seems Ketchup Boys minions and (dare I say it?) lackeys are trying to recruit parents of dead armed service members to their anti-Bush campaign ( H/T Moonbattery):

Hanoi John has used funerals as an opportunity to accost the families of fallen soldiers in an attempt to recruit them for his cause.
One example is the family of Justin Johnson of Rome, Georgia, who was killed in Sadr City in 2004. According to Moy:
A woman — who had also lost her son in the war and who represented the local Kerry campaign — approached the Johnsons at their son's wake. Justin was laid out in his Army uniform as the woman began her speech about hating Bush and helping Kerry. She asked the Johnsons to speak out against President Bush.
Michael Moore has also been involved in these morbid and disgusting recruitment activities. The idea of course is to create more Cindy Sheehans, who herself "went on the payroll of John Kerry's campaign within days after her son's death," according to Morgan.

(Morgan and Moy are the authors of the book "American Mourning".)

Makes me damn glad the electorate had their bullshit detectors on during the 2004 elections - and hope the batteries are charged for Tuesday.....
