During Coretta Scott King's funeral services yesterday, many speakers paid tribute to not only Coretta but also to her husband and others who gave their lives to the civil rights movement. One such speaker was Rev. Joseph Lowery. In a long rhyme he stated, "We know now there were no weapons of mass destruction over there. But Coretta knew and we know that there are weapons of misdirection right down here -- millions without health insurance, poverty abounds. For war, billions more, but no more for the poor." Although I think his position is correct, I wonder if it can be stated that using a funeral as a platform to launch a political attack is maybe in poor taste. I must admit that watching the look on the Bush's faces (seated directly behind the podium) made me giggle a little. Giggling during a funeral is probably inappropriate too.

Yeah, and g bushy is gonna end up looking better than he should because he sat there and ate shit from almost everyone. It's just like when we skewer(sp?) his posts on e-pissy. It doesn't do a damn bit of good.

I think that G-Bushy looked a little shocked by all the shit he was taking. It's like, if you were at a funeral of an acquaintance and suddenly it turned into a roast of you. I would not have been surprised if Dino showed up.
