Apparently someone forgot to tell 2010 U. S. Senate challenger Jim Deakin that it is considered vulgar to campaign at cemeteries.
Yet that is exactly what he did when he and a handful of his campaign workers showed up at the Memorial Day ceremony at the National Memorial Cemetery, the final resting place of thousands of Arizona military veterans.
Wearing bright chartreuse-green T-shirts with “Deakin for Senate” emblazoned across the front, they greeted shocked attendees at the somber ceremony, by distributing Deakin’s campaign flyers.
Gov. Jan Brewer and other elected officials addressed the otherwise dignified event.
In lieu of a campaign contribution, a copy of Emily Post’s most recent Etiquette guide may be more useful.
