Al Franken reflects on the left's lack of class

Fresh from the HuffPost comes "Al Franken: Reflections on the Wellstone Memorial and the King Funeral". Even though there are already 172 comments at post time, none have so far included a link to this site, nor do any of them have the word 'club', as in Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club. Feel free to rectify that.

In his slight defense, it includes the following:
Four presidents spoke. One of them, Jimmy Carter, made a passing reference to the fact that Martin and Coretta King had been the victims of domestic wiretapping by the government. Was it a shot at President George W. Bush, who was sitting right behind Carter? Probably. Was that inappropriate? Maybe.

Would Coretta Scott King have enjoyed the moment? I don't know. You know who would have a better idea than me? Jimmy Carter. He knew Mrs. King. Those who are currently complaining - most of whom claim to be offended on her behalf - didn't know her at all.

Funny how he didn't comment on Gunny Cheney's noteable absence there. But oh dear, someone might have mentioned his opposition to sanctions on South Africa and you 'folks' would call it classless even if the woman worked against that.

Please stick your BS righteous indignation up your well Gannon'd bottoms and stop crying for supposedly the most powerful leader in the world happening not to be in a room he can control and getting a little backtalk.

It was her's and their funeral to say as they wished. I'm shocked y'all didn't piddle yourselves over the fact Maya Angelou mentioned peace.

I forget, you like to slam funerals and get all Miss Manners but when it comes to exploiting a woman in a permanent vegetative state, look out...

"Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club"

I know, in an article about memorials how dare people not mention that? Just like how dare they not mentioning severe cocaine snorting, imminent domain used to steal land for your team's ballpark, or that AWOL thingy in during the CSK memorial just cuz' POTUS Bush was there.
