Susan G at Daily Kos smacks the tight-assed lily-white pundit class for their completely politically based “outrage” over the tenor at Coretta Scott King’s funeral service.
I have two words for these whiny-babies with seriously clinical martyr complexes: Ronald Reagan. Is that funeral even over yet on Fox?
Not only do these hypocritical conservatives want to step in and tell me and my family that I can be kept alive for years against my wishes, a petri dish harboring their precious “culture of life,” now they want to control the “message” at my funeral. Well … I’ve got news for them. It’s time they shut their yaps, this GOP party of control freaks extraordinaire.
I think progressives, especially those with high profiles or fame, should just add a clause to their wills, making it bloody clear that they want their funerals to reflect their lives, and that their love for peace and justice, for equality and fairness, for tolerance and compassion, should be front and center. Then post the damm thing on the front door of the proceedings, so that Kate O’Beirne and Matt Drudge can rest assured that the deceased is resting easy with the event.
