image for Obama Supports National Cemetary Xeriscaping

Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama has stated that he supports the xeriscaping of the Fort Bliss National Military Cemetary in El Paso, Texas.

In a story first reported on in early June, military leaders at Fort Bliss have decided to remove the grass at the national cemetary due to drought conditions, but are building a new 27 hole officers' golf course at the same time.

Obama stated that "doesn't the Bible say something like let the dead bury the dead? We need to take care of the living soldiers, and any members of Congress that feel the need to visit that base and get in 18 holes before military budget meetings or fact finding missions across the river in Mexico."

Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain was upset by his opponent's remarks. "There's thousands of good men buried in that hallowed ground. They deserve more respect than my opponent would grant to them. If Senator Obama wants to play with his dimpled balls, that's his perogative. I think the whole situation, however, is a double bogie."

In a spirit of compromise, side swapping and flip flopping Senator Joe Lieberman proposed a solution that might make both sides happy (it didn't). He suggested that "we just put in a few putting greens in the cemetary and let those flower vases double as the cups."
