    Tasteless and Classless. But what do we really expect from them?

    ------

    Today's memorial service for civil rights activist Coretta Scott King -- billed as a "celebration" of her life -- turned suddenly political as one former president took a swipe at the current president, who was also lashed by an outspoken black pastor!

    The outspoken Rev. Joseph Lowery, co-founder of Southern Christian Leadership Conference, ripped into President Bush during his short speech, ostensibly about the wife of Martin Luther King Jr.

    "She extended Martin's message against poverty, racism and war. She deplored the terror inflicted by our smart bombs on missions way afar. We know now that there were no weapons of mass destruction over there," Lowery said.

    The mostly black crowd applauded, then rose to its feet and cheered in a two-minute-long standing ovation.

    A closed-circuit television in the mega-church outside Atlanta showed the president smiling uncomfortably.

    "But Coretta knew, and we know," Lowery continued, "That there are weapons of misdirection right down here," he said, nodding his head toward the row of presidents past and present. "For war, billions more, but no more for the poor!" The crowd again cheered wildly.

    Former President Jimmy Carter later swung at Bush as well, not once but twice. As he talked about the Kings, he said: "It was difficult for them then personally with the civil liberties of both husband and wife violated as they became the target of secret government wiretaps." The crowd cheered as Bush, under fire for a secret wiretapping program he ordered after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, again smiled weakly.

    Later, Carter said Hurricane Katrina showed that all are not yet equal in America. Some black leaders have blamed Bush for the poor federal response, and rapper Kayne West said that Bush "hates" black people.

    Yup we should be funneling billions of tax dollars straight to the poor. Give me a fucking break.

    Very cheap of them to use a memorial service for political grandstanding. Way to go dems.

    It's the second one in my memory. The first backfired on them, bet this will too.

    Now, as for Mrs. King....I've lived in Atlanta most of my life and have never heard of her doing anything "for the cause" per se, other than a comment here, or there. Big F'ing deal!

    I'll assume she got to heaven, given her life on earth, penance paid. With that said, can't help but wonder about her 'second thoughts.' We can see more clearly there, no?

    What really irritates me is they dont see anything wrong with it. Its perfectly okay to use someones death and instead of celebrating their life, turn it into a political rally to them. It makes no sense.

    And what really irritated me is the fact that Teddy Kennedy is there supporting their comments on "wire tapping" when it was his brother than had MLK Wire tapped trying to discredit him.

    using someone's memorial service as a platform to vent their left wing garbage. I was personally appalled at the political references. It really demonstrates that the Dems have lost the ability to be respectful, tactful, or timely. What a perfect demonstration as well that Black Americans have a stilted, narrow, victimhood driven, viewpoint of this country. I think Martin Luther King would be disgusted...

    Too bad Bush has too much class to say something like "I'm proud of the way we have managed to move our country forward from segragationist Democrats like the Klansman Robert C Byrd filibustering the Civil Rights Bill, or AG Kennedy wiretapping Mrs. King's husband to dig up dirt."

    I've been having to put up with the traffic increase from this spectacle, not to mention all the tourist traffic...over 40 miles from the perimeter. It's frustrating.
