Noble Cause + Hero passes on = Bash Bush?

The funeral of Coretta Scott King was an opportunity to honor her legacy and achievements, as well as those of her husband. True to form, some liberals made it a Bush bashing party. Reverend Joseph Lowery, who I guess is famous for founding something, said the following (according to Drudge):

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.

What does that have to do with honoring Coretta Scott King? He continues:

"But Coretta knew, and we know," Lowery continued, "That there are weapons of misdirection right down here," he said, nodding his head toward the row of presidents past and present. "For war, billions more, but no more for the poor!"

What a classless stunt, to use a funeral to bash the individual who came to honor Mrs. King, representing the entire nation. Fortunately for my Dad, my son, and me, Rev. Lowery spells his last name incorrectly, so I can avoid that element of association just a little.

Jimmy Carter said some stuff too, about this Hurricane that is supposed to have taught us about race but didn't, but he frittered away any credibility that he may have had a long time ago, so we'll just pretend the 39th President was mute. He may as well have been for all the good he did while in office.

Just needed to vent a little.
