Right Wing Bloggers Totally Get Tracy Jopek Bracelet Story Wrong

Also: fire is hot and water is wet. Te Junior Rove society strikes out again.

After Tracy Jopek gave Sen. Barack Obama a bracelet in honor of her son who was killed in Iraq, she asked Obama not to mention the bracelet on the campaign trail.

But Jopek told The Associated Press on Sunday that she's satisfied with how Obama discussed it during last week's presidential debate.

Jopek gave Obama the bracelet at a Green Bay rally in February. It has the name of her son, Sgt. Ryan David Jopek, and the date the 20-year-old was killed by a roadside bomb, Aug. 2, 2006. 'All gave some -- He gave all,' it says.


It was an answer that Tracy Jopek said made her proud.

"His response in the debate was exactly that, a response, after John McCain put it out there first," she said. "I think it was an appropriate response -- he was just saying there's another side to the story, there's two different viewpoints."

And yet again, the Mighty Con Blogs strike out.
