This one really came across as crass tonight.
McCain points out the bracelet he has from the parent of a fallen soldier. Obama, naturally, has to point out that he has one too.
Only Obama can’t remember any details. I’m reminded of President George H. W. Bush looking at his watch in the 1992 debate. Obama had to look down at the bracelet to remember the details.
How pathetic and how pitiful a way to remember the fallen.
Jim Geraghty has more thoughts on the matter.
