Everyone is watching Kerry to be sure he doesn't politicize the death of Reagan. We all know that only Republicans are allowed to politicize death. So here comes David Halbfinger:
On his way to pay his respects to Ronald Reagan, Senator John Kerry, his campaign otherwise suspended until the former president's funeral, nonetheless managed to take a swipe at President Bush for marginalizing Democrats in Congress and to highlight his own role in Mr. Reagan's history.
That shameless bastard. How dare he relate his past experience with his present. Didn't he promise to suspend campaign activity and become a mouthpiece for the RNC for the week? All hail Dear Leader!
And this is unbelieveable:
Mr. Kerry, who came to Los Angeles to see his daughter Alexandra, 30, graduate from the American Film Institute on Wednesday, briefly paid his respects to Mr. Reagan at the presidential library in Simi Valley, Calif., Tuesday afternoon. Momentarily cutting through a cordon of mourners, he saluted Mr. Reagan's coffin with his hand over his heart, bowed his head, crossed himself, saluted again and left - all in the space of a minute.
He cut through the line of mourners and only took a minute to grieve publically. There you have it. He's history's greatest monster. On the other hand, considering how many of those mourners were suffering in the Simi Valley heat, it was awful nice of Sen. Kerry to keep his mourning brief.
