Ohio Senate, Shame on Sherrod

Grown Ohio. First they scrubbed their website when Sherrod Brown flip-flopped on entering the Senate race. Now they've posted an edited version of Congressman Brown's speech to a candidates' forum in Columbus. No wonder. Sherrod actually said Bush and Company are doing a pretty good job with body armor in Iraq now.
They include his CAFTA rant (we lost), education (he voted for NCLB), and the UN (he's for it). But the question about Iraq is missing. So is the most incendiary statement Sherrod Brown made last Saturday.
Here's a paraphrase of his response to the question about Iraq: "I've got to give them [Bush and Company] credit. They're doing a better job with body armor in Iraq now."
The next day, four US Marines were killed by an improvised roadside bomb. One was from Westerville, OH. He was scheduled to come back to Ohio on leave this month.
No wonder they scrubbed the online version of his speech. (And you can find the editing "jump" towards the end of the video, where a person lists all the stuff Congressman Brown talked about. The guy asking the question says Brown talked about the war, but that's not on the video).
Of course, there were 200 people at the forum, so it might be a little hard to pretend this didn't happen.
