Hey, I have a question.

Here it is: If you can't behave yourself at a funeral, can you be trusted to govern the nation?

Did you see how the leftists were comporting themselves yesterday at the funeral of Coretta Scott King?

The Rev. Joseph Lowery, who co-founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference with Martin Luther King, noted how no WMD were found in Iraq. Yes, it's true.

Former Pres. Carter told the audience about how the victims of Katrina were overwhelmingly black (even thought they weren't), implicitly charging the Bush Administration with racism. Then, Carter spoke about the evils of government spying (he was taking a jab at the NSA jihadi surveillance program used by the Bush Administration) that tracked Dr. King.

Ted Kennedy, whose brothers spied on MLK, recounted a time that his brother Robert interceded for Dr. King.

Did some one die here? I almost forgot.

But wait, there's more. The "nation's first black president" openly campaigned for his wife to be the next president.

Pres. Bush, who was treated most disrespectfully by the assembled leftists, merely remembered the long and noble march to equal rights under law that Coretta Scott King and her husband championed.

The debacle brought to mind the Wellstone Memorial, where leftists solemnly celebrated the life of one of their departed icons by partying, politicking and attacking Republicans.

As I recall, voters saw the Wellstone debacle and gave an answer to the question I have posed here.
