Betcha Prez Bush wishes he'd stayed home

I knew that Coretta Scott King's funeral was going to be a long, (it ran for 6 hours!), tedious and tacky affair and I pitied George Bush for having to go but I never expected that the man would be insulted repeatedly while sitting on the stage behind Mrs. King's casket. Turning a funeral into a political rally is beyond the pale. Somebody ought to tell Jimmy Carter that Dr. King was secretly taped during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. JFK and LBJ were Democrats. Eisenhower and Nixon and Reagan had nothing to do with it.

Coretta Scott King suffered greatly in her last illness and in her life. It wasn't easy being married to the symbol of the Civil Rights Movement. It wasn't easy raising four kids alone and being a widow for nearly 40 years either.

May she rest in peace.

This is a good post and is very much like my sentiments. Over at Jazzycat we tried to put a little humor on what the democrats have sunken to on the Friday Feb. 10 post.
