In reading through the whole article, I agree with PART of what she said. I think the conservative disagreement comes with HER perception the rest of the funeral.
Just my opinion, but both Presidents Bush showed extreme class, Carter showed his usual out-to-lunch attitude, and Clinton showed his usual silver-tongued devil self. Mrs. Clinton...don't get me started! Mrs. Laura Bush showed her usual well-mannered self; Mrs. Jimmy Carter showed her usual black-eyed meaness.
Bottom line: What did we expect from a 10,000-member, mostly black church that wants to denigrate everything President Bush says? BTW, this particular church is apparently in one of THE most affluent areas of Georgia, and has THE most affluent congregation.
P.S. If you are a minority of any ethnic group, please don't start with me. I am neither racist nor prejudiced in any way. Apparently most of the members of this particular church have a LOT more money than I'll ever see.
No, civil rights could have been an appropriate topic, but not WMDs. ....and certainly not trying to blame Republicans for the spying on the Kings. That was an insinuated lie. It was the Kennedy's who were reponsible for that.
Bottom line, the speakers were ungracious, oppurtunistic, lying politicians, with the exception of the Bushes.
This wasn't the church that MLK himself dipped his wick into many of the congregation members or was that the one in Birmingham?
