How are Republicans tastefully observing Sept 11?

Fortunately, on the fifth aniversay of the 9/11 attacks, there's so much more to look forward to than just

South Carolina Republican candidate Karen Floyd wanted to do something more original, a little bolder, a whole lot tougher and ballsier than the Republican flag-wrapping, turd-gilding, war-mongering, reality-fabricating, history-rewriting, terror-porn, same-old same-old. Karen Floyd decided that the best way to observe the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks that claimed the lives of 2,973 American civilians on American soil was to kill innocent things in cold blood herself.

Republican candidate Floyd is spending the day hunting. For doves. In fact, it's a campaign event. And, if you want to go and fire rifles at the international symbol of peace with Floyd and her Republican friends on the anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks, it will only cost you $1000 for the priviledge.

Blood, gunpowder, grave-dancing and money-grubbing: Republican values in action.

Praise god and pass the ammunition.

PS Republicans are the folks who revile the memorial celebrations of the lives and accomplishments of Paul Wellstone and Coretta Scott King as "indecent". Just keep that in mind for perspective.
