R.I.P. - Rest In Politics

It can never be said that liberals would let good taste get in the way of their politics. At yesterday's funeral service for Coretta Scott King, Jimmy Carter and Rev. Joseph Lowery used their speaking opportunities to berate President Bush for the response to Hurricane Katrina and the war in Iraq. Topics worthy of national debate, I guess, but definitely not in the context of this woman's funeral.

Much like the memorial service held for Paul Wellstone after his untimely death in 2002, liberals have taken this event entirely out of context to serve their own partisan purposes. It's grotesque, it's absurd, and I personally would be ashamed to have been associated with this crew. But, I shouldn't be too hard on Jimmy and Joe. Scruples are a hard thing to come by these days. Those of us who do have them should be thankful.
