Protesting the Wounded

How pathetic does your little world have to be for you to crawl out of your hole each morning and march yourself down to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center to make the wounded and their families feel like total shit all day long? These people make me sick:
When he was a patient at the hospital, Pannell said he initially tried to ignore the anti-war activists camped out in front of Walter Reed, until witnessing something that enraged him.

"We went by there one day and I drove by and [the anti-war protesters] had a bunch of flag-draped coffins laid out on the sidewalk. That, I thought, was probably the most distasteful thing I had ever seen. Ever," Pannell, a member of the Army's First Cavalry Division, told Cybercast News Service.

"You know that 95 percent of the guys in the hospital bed lost guys whenever they got hurt and survivors' guilt is the worst thing you can deal with..."
Code Pink Women for Peace organizes the protests at Walter Reed - they are also one of the groups financing Cindy Sheehan's camp-out at Crawford Texas.
