How disgusting that politicians decided to use the funeral of a wonderful woman (Rosa Parks) to grandstand and attack President Bush. What should have been a fitting tribute and deserving memorial turned into hours of rehashed rhetoric. How sad.
The funeral for Rosa Parks was held in Detroit (where she lived for many years until her death), and the politicians from John Kerry to Hillary Clinton to Nancy Pelosi (who invited her?) to Bill Clinton were tripping over themselves to be seen and heard. Even disgraced has-been Jesse Jackson was there.
What should have been a true celebration of life was turned into a political free-for-all.
