    There has been relatively little criticism of the context of President Obama's speech last night calling for civility in the wake of the Tucson tragedy - in fact, conservative blogger Ed Morrissey called it perhaps "the finest moment of his presidency." But some are pointing to both the response of his audience and the fact that t-shirts were handed out to cast the memorial as an inappropriately political event.


    T-shirts reading "Together We Thrive: Tucson & America" were handed out to attendees at the event, prompting conservative pundit Michelle Malkin to complain: "Isn't the churning of the instant messaging machine a bit, well, unseemly? Can't the Democrat political stage managers give it a break just once?"


    Pointing to the fact that the slogan appeared on various items at the event, Malkin wrote, "Yes, the Tucson massacre is being branded." She later wrote that she had been informed that the University Of Arizona had been responsible for the t-shirts and other items, but added: "Given the Obama White House's meticulous attention to stage prop details, however, I would say the odds of involvement by Axelrod/Plouffe & Co. are high."



    Added Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit, sarcastically: "Every memorial needs a special T-shirt. Doesn't it?"

    Someone wrote a pretty good speach for the Teleprompter-In-Chief, but that speach would have worked better at a memorial service, instead of a political rally complete with T-shirts and groundlings that performed like Pavlov's dogs.
