On Monday, President Bush attended the funeral service for Coretta Scott King. A blatently political move, since with every breath he takes, our president seeks to undo the lifetime effort and values CSK ever made or had. It wasn’t quite as scripted as his usual public appearances, and things got a little, um, uncomfortable for President God™.
My first thought when I heard what happened was: Somebody in this administration is soon going to be spending more time with his family.
And now this:
Claude Allen, President Bush’s principal domestic policy advisor, has resigned. A White House spokesman told the Chicago Tribune that Allen wanted to spend more time with his family.
I read at Escheton that Claude Allen is African American. Is there a connection between the sudden realignment of priorities at the Allen house, and what happened on Monday? We report; you decide.
