Once again, a funeral has been turned into a moment of political opportunity. Two speakers at Coretta Scott King's memorial service used their time to take shots at President Bush. This is what Rev. Joseph Lowery had to say...
"She extended Martin's message against poverty, racism and war. She deplored the terror inflicted by our smart bombs on missions way afar. We know now that there were no weapons of mass destruction over there,"
Yeah, those horrible smart bombs. We should really go back to the days of carpet bombing.

Former President Jimmy Carter even got a few shots in...
"It was difficult for them then personally with the civil liberties of both husband and wife violated as they became the target of secret government wiretaps."
Carter may not remember this, but those were Democratic administrations who allowed the Kings' phones to be tapped.

You know, President Bush really infuriates me sometimes. I think he's wrong on immigration, he needs to control spending, he shouldn't have signed McCain-Feingold, and he's let the federal government grow too much. In spite of those grievances, I still support him because the alternative is so much worse. Using a funeral to take cheap political shots at Bush (who was sitting there for the whole thing) is just disgusting behavior. If you're willing to do something like that, then you have about as much class as a Bangkok hooker.
