Funerals, anyone?

Filed under: Society-Culture — Bunker @ 11:53 am

With Bush’s visit to Iraq all over the news, overshadowing Senator Clinton’s trip to Afghanistan and Iraq, Democrats are scrambling to find something bad to say about the President. Bush was welcomed enthusiastically, Clinton barely noticed (“I think they’re more excited about [meeting] Geraldo,” coalition spokesman Lt. Col. Bryan Hilferty told the Boston Globe).

It is interesting to see the debates regarding President Bush’s decision not to attend funerals for soldiers killed in Iraq. People seem to be quite angry about this. But the people who are angry are media personalities and hard-core anti-Bush types. At one left-leaning online forum, people proclaim their indignation and hatred, and view it as an affront, ostensibly, to the families. However, they really see it as an affront to themselves
