Sergeant, Sergeant Who?

The worst part of the debate last night was when Obama said "I have a bracelet, too!" and then had to look down and read the name off the bracelet 'cuz he didn't even know the name of the army sergeant he was supposedly honoring.


Update: It gets worse. Listen to this from Grizzly Groundswell

Family Upset Obama Wears Their Son’s Bracelet

Radio host Glenn Moberg of the show “Route 51″ asked Mr. Jopek, a man who believes in the efforts in Iraq and is not in favor of Obama’s positions on the war, what he and his ex-wife think of Obama continually using their son’s name on the campaign trail.

Jopek began by saying that his ex-wife was taken aback, even upset, that Obama has made the death of her son a campaign issue. Jopek says his wife gave Obama the bracelet because “she just wanted Mr. Obama to know Ryan’s name.” Jopek went on to say that “she wasn’t looking to turn it into a big media event” and “just wanted it to be something between Barack Obama and herself.” Apparently, they were all shocked it became such a big deal.
