Again the left showed no limits to its indulgence of the race and victimization hustlers and its hatred for the President in the shameful theatrics at the funeral of Coretta Scott King. Here were many of the usual suspects, including former Presidents Carter and Clinton, using a service of celebration and reverence as a political stage and exploiting the legacy of the Kings to attempt to embarrass President Bush and his father in their presence. They touched all the bases and hot buttons—government wiretapping, analogies to the failure to find weapons of mass destruction, the plight of the Katrina victims, and the clearly political overtones of praise for Sen. Hillary Clinton. The left has no shame, it has abandoned all sense of civility and, no matter the cries of equivalency, there is nothing comparable to this pattern of behavior on the right. Can anyone really imagine Bush 41 participating in such a stunt while Clinton was President, or Ford during the failed Carter administration, in any venue, much less a funeral service? The King children should have been embarrassed; I’m confident their father would have been.
