Dispatches from the Creation Wars

I’m sure you’ve heard the latest one: President Obama is not going to be at Arlington National Cemetary on Memorial Day to honor the soldiers, he’s sending Biden instead — and this is the first time a president has ever snubbed the precious memories of dead heroes like this! Obama hates the troops!

Except, of course, this is utter bullshit. Snopes points out that not only is that false, it is routinely done by Republican presidents — even conservative heroes like Ronald Reagan, who missed it four times in eight years. And you know who didn’t miss a single Memorial Day at Arlington? Bill Clinton. Another stupid rumor shot to hell.
