Partisan Patriotism Paused

Remember when we told ourselves how the terrorist attacks eleven years ago would bring our nation together? We’d no longer be partisan, but united in one cause – to celebrate American freedom. Good to know that here in 2012 we can look around and see that we all get along, there’s no political pandering and bickering, and we finally have unity.
Well… for one day at least. Both President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney plan to take down their negative ads in honor of the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Gee, thanks guys. So the plan is be civil today but to go back to being complete jerks tomorrow? Yeah, I’m sure that’s what everybody had in mind when we created Patriots Day.
