Disrespecting the dead

Hey, greatest generation — your sacrifices were all in vain. Waste of time. Should have just stayed home.

That’s what this says to me:

WASHINGTON – In another swipe at the French, a Florida congresswoman has proposed that the government pay for families who might want to bring home from France the remains of Americans who fought and died in the world wars.

“I, along with many other Americans, do not feel that the French government appreciates the sacrifices men and women in uniform have made to defend the freedom that the French enjoy today,” Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite said in introducing legislation providing financial help for the reburial of veterans from the two world wars.

I don’t know for sure that this woman is officially the Stupidest Person in Government, but she’s certainly in the running.
