I'm glad the speakers at Coretta Scott King's funeral took it to Bush. He lives in a cocoon and yesterday he got an opportunity to see exactly what some folks are thinking about him. It was clear that he wasn't comfortable but he had to know that it was coming. That's why it took him to the last minute to decide to attend the funeral.
I know some will argue that the political grandstanding was the wrong place at the wrong time. But I think, when given a chance to juxtapose the life of Coretta Scott King and the political environment we have today created by President Bush, what better place is there? I know conservatives will have their panties in a knot over this, but they didn't care about the struggle and at best are bystanders of it. So who really cares what they think?
If the King family isn't crying foul, then you can believe that they approved of it - and if it's cool with them, then it's cool with me.
