Frank Rich writes of one of the most heinous instances of branding I've ever heard of, where the Bush administration is now disseminating their violently euphemistic memes on the tombs of American soldiers.

The Vietnamization of Bush's Vacation - New York Times: "Lest any propaganda opportunity be missed, Arlington's gravestones are being branded with the Pentagon's slogans for military campaigns, like Operation Iraqi Freedom, The Associated Press reported last week - a historic first. If only the administration had thought of doing the same on the fallen's coffins, it might have allowed photographs."
