    "he doesn't respect the heroes, that gave their lives for this country"- random southern XM channel

    i guess Bush, Bush Sr. and Reagan never cared either.

    Clinton OTH visited arlington all 8 years of his terms

    BP could have done with you this week. Damn you and your still-living status :p

    I don't care where I end up, but there will be no embalming. I want my remains to quickly rot back into the earth, not lie there full of poison for a few decades.

    Anyway, back on topic I suppose the Tea Party official line is that Obama is only going to the cemetery in Chicago to dance on a few graves before getting back to ruining the country :D

    "He's going to be at another veteran cemetery in Chicago instead."

    If such be the case, that's good enough for me. While Arlington is the most important memorial site, it's still just one among many. The issue, to me, is acknowledgement in remembrance.

    One of my FB friends nearly ruined my keyboard with his post the day Gary Coleman died in which he intimated that Coleman's corpse was just about the right size to plug a certain hole in the ocean -- just sayin'. :D
