If looks could Kill!

Here's a picture
of George and Laura Bush at Corretta Scott King's funeral. The Rev. Joseph Lowery, who co-founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference with Martin Luther King Jr. was one of several speakers (including ex-President's Carter and Clinton) who brought up such facts as J. Edgar Hoovers' illegal wire-tapping of MLK jr. References were made to the incompetent response to hurricane Katrina, the war in Iraq.
Kate O'Bitch-Beirne - Author of the hardcover garbage, Women who make the world worse
is apparently of the mind that Corretta Scott King was one of those women making the world 'Worse'. She was just on Tweety's Fuzzball show blasting Rev. Lowery and the ex-Presidents for being so "Political" at a solemn event like a funeral.
Hmmm. Let's see shall we! Coretta Scott King was an anti-war activist, check! Coretta Scott King was ILLEGALLY
wire-tapped by her own government in an effort to break up their marriage, check! Coretta Scott King constantly railed against the Government for taking actions that were harmful to the African-American community and spoke out frequently against policies and actions of our government that were patently unfair to the black community, check! (Can we say Hurricane Katrina?)
Personally I think this picture is worth a thousand words. If it takes dragging Bush's sorry ass out of his little West-Wing bubble where everyone tells him what he wants to hear--to a highly charged event like this in order to get him a dose of some Truth--then Amen! Even in death, Corretta's spirit got to attack 'the System' which she fought so hard against in life.
Rest in Peace Corretta. You've touched so many and WE WILL
help carry your torch!
