We realize the nomination for the Democrat presidential nomination is a tooth and nail fight, but if Senator Barack Obama really is the presumptive nominee, why is he trying to one-up rival Senator Hillary Clinton? You may remember during her First Lady days (I know, we try not to remember) she channeled Eleanor Roosevelt. As of yesterday, in New Mexico, Senator Obama had his own paranormal experience. Of course, he should have super powers since he's the Democrat "messiah" according to Chris Matthews and other liberal lightweights. Speaking to a Memorial Day gathering in Las Cruces, he said:

On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience today . . . . (See the video for yourself, here.)

He then went on to talk almost entirely about veterans. This man, who wants to be Commander-In-Chief, is either clueless and does not not know the meaning of Memorial Day or sees ghosts. Predictably, only the conservative blogosphere and talk radio have picked up on this. That's okay, senator, you may be able to see ghosts, but the public finally is seeing right through your transparent self. 

The senator surely has a gift, alright, and he keeps giving it. Instead of "messiah" we should call him the "The Gift That Keeps On Giving" because he continues to gaffe. Hey senator, read our our post from yesterday! Memorial Day honors those who gave themselves up in battle for our country, not living veterans!  

Is this what we're getting from our public education theses days?

Could anything have better proven our point? Would it even be fair to ask the senator who Veterans Day honors?
