Before I get to the linkage, here's a little "What if Bush Had Done It" moment for you, from Newsbusters via Memeorandum regarding Obama's shout-out to Dr. Joe Medicine Crow prior to his remarks on the Fort Hood tragedy:
Ah, the dangers of giving shout outs without a teleprompter. Crow is not a Medal of Honor recipient. As noted by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society:
The Medal of Honor is the highest award for valor in action against an enemy force which can be bestowed upon an individual serving in the Armed Services of the United States. Generally presented to its recipient by the President of the United States of America in the name of Congress, it is often called the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Crow's name is not included on the Society's Medal of Honor recipient list. He was, however, awarded the Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, in August.
Since Obama actually awarded this particular medal, you'd think he'd know the difference. Oh well.
On to the links:

So I'm off to have breakfast and watch some lively debate on Obamacare. Might get some house work and laundry done. Clean up things the dog chewed. Read some of my Ayn Rand biography. Good times. Have a great Saturday!
