I don't think the Republicans who glorify Tillman even know about the man, much less the shame behind his death: Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld covered up the facts surrounding Tillman's death, and yet Republicans keep milking Tillman's patriotism for every last dollar and vote they can get. This is particularly galling when they mix war and God.in reference to:
"“He’s not with God, he’s fucking dead,” asserted Mr Tillman. “Thanks for your thoughts but he’s fucking dead.” Mr Tillman, who has a low tolerance for lies was clearly offended by the sentiments, stating that his deceased brother “was not religious.”"
