Do you suppose the Left will win over any Ohio swing voters this way?
American flags, lining the lawn of the mother- and father-in-law of fallen U.S. Army Pfc. Timothy Hines Jr., were heaped in a pile early Saturday and burned under a car parked in front of the home – less than 24 hours after Hines was buried in Cincinnati’s Spring Grove Cemetery.
Update: It looks like some chipper Leftie Readers at “The MahaBlog” have their “let’s pretend to be pro-military” hats on today:
Just Call Me the Boogywoman
This act of senseless vandalism was bad enough, but what really pisses me off are the hateful rightie twits who jumped to the conclusion (unsupported by the article) that the perpetrators represent The Left in America.

Maybe I missed something, but…
– I don’t recall the Leftist Senators lining up to side with Republicans and the military when Senator Durbin accused our soldiers of Nazi-like behavior.
– I don’t recall any Democrats telling Teddy Kennedy to ease up on the “Abu Ghraib opened under new management” talk.
– I don’t remember Howard Dean screaming… “And, we’re gonna go to New Hampshire, and Kentucky and I love our military! … YEAHHHOWWWW!”
And, yes these arguments are as silly as the democratic party pretending to be pro-military!
It’s hard to include every Leftist Anti-War group on your roster and not have an inkling that the perpetrators of this vandalism are either members of your party or future members.
