That's Pathetic

Above are two e-mails received within an hour of each other on September 17, 2004.  The first, from the RNC, has an Associated Press photo of 3-year-old Sophia Parlock crying on top of the shoulders of her father Phil Parlock after the Bush-Cheney sign she was holding was ripped up.  This occurred at a Sept. 16 rally John Edwards held at Tri-State Airport in Huntington, WV.  According to news accounts Mr. Parlock has a history of bringing Republican signs into Democratic rallies.  The second, from the DNC, is an account of a woman whose son was killed in Iraq and who was detained after trying to ask why that had happened during a rally Laura Bush held on Sept. 16 at Colonial Fire House in Hamilton, NJ.
