MUST SEE Video: Standing O for Reverend's "No WMD" Speech


(big hat tip to My Left Wing and Crooks and Liars)
Click here for the video
Speaking before four presidents, including President George W. Bush, Rev. Dr. Joseph Lowery received a standing ovation today at the Coretta Scott King funeral. Watch the UPDATED video, from C&L:
"We know now there were no weapons of mass destruction over there. But Coretta knew and we know that there are weapons of misdirection right down here. Millions without health insurance. Poverty abounds. For war billions more but no more for the poor."

Look, maybe I'm crazy and maybe it's wishful thinking... But the sight of all those people standing up to applaud words so OBVIOUSLY aimed at the Pretender in Chief... Man, I've got chills.

And to the inevitable right wing complaints about "politicising" this:

It is about time people stop trying to pretend that Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King were APOLITICAL people. They LIVED the political life.

This is the BEST tribute he could have given them both.
Amen to that.
