HuffPo Marty Kaplan: Bush at the Funeral
Marty Kaplan: From Paul Wellstone to Coretta King, from The Huffington Post: "Why are Republicans such weenies about funeral orations?
Wingnut crybabies are whining that W got dissed at Coretta King's funeral. What did they expect -- praise for his civil rights record? Honor for his warrantless wiretapping? Encomia for widening the gap between rich and poor? Heckofajob!s for his post-Katrina promise-keeping?
I can understand why he didn't plan on attending the funeral in the first place; W's kind of African-American event is more like the 2000 Republican convention that nominated him in Philadelphia, where the only black faces were the ones on stage."
