A major sacrifice

This is not a political blog, but I am a political person, and I was appalled by this.

For the first time, Bush revealed a personal way in which he has tried to acknowledge the sacrifice of soldiers and their families.

“I don't want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf,” he said. “I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.”

As shows of responsibility (er, solidarity) go, giving up golf is not exactly plucking out one's eyes or committing hari kari.

Of course, it beats this (which, to be fair, was shot before pledge or, I think, Iraq):

Still: grrrrrr.
