Pay No Attention To The Woman In The Casket
One of the most important lessons any person, organization, or political party can learn as time passes is to learn from past mistakes. After being smacked around in an electoral contest, one would think a political party would look back at the events leading up to their defeat and say "We sure as hell aren't going to do that again!"
I bring to your remembrance the memorial service for the late Senator Paul Wellstone (D-MN) in late 2002. He died in a small plane crash during the last month of his re-election bid. His death was tragic, however the memorial service was hijacked by the left-wing whack jobs. It is a generally accepted premise that the hate-filled political speeches dominating this service cost the Democratic party an untold number of Senate races across the country. Have you forgotten? Ian has the video - as usual.
The current band of Left-Winged Jackasses made a pilgrimage to Atlanta - supposedly to honor and mourn the late Coretta Scott King, widow of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Having learned nothing from the Wellstone debacle, many of those who were given the honor of addressing the crowd took the opportunity not to honor Mrs. King, but to take cheap political shots at W.
Principal among the moonbat chorus were Jimmy "Sir Robin" Carter, who pointed out that:
It was difficult for them [the King family] then personally with the civil liberties of both husband and wife violated as they became the target of secret government wiretaps.His effort was mirrored by Reverend Joseph Lowery who weakly tried to slam the Iraq war by channeling Mrs. King and putting his views in her mouth.
Why, pray tell dear Reverend, was W asked to speak at her funeral? If she was anti-W, I'm sure her relatives would not have allowed him to give his tribute.
Personally, I'm not a fan of funerals. I don't go to them unless its a close friend or family member. What I do know is a funeral or memorial service is no place from whence to vent one's spleen. To do so shows a high level of desperation and a considerable lack of education, upbringing, and moral understanding.
Considering the speakers that took advantage of the forum and turned it into a political rally, I'm not that surprised.
Here endeth the lesson.
