Classless Act: Show Funeral
Lee Harris compared the Democrats
Bush bashing session at Coretta Scott King's funeral to Stalin's show trails.
The Soviets under Stalin were famous for their "show" trials -- trials that were put on not in order to judge a man's innocence or guilt -- since the verdict of "guilty" was always a foregone conclusion -- but simply as an exercise in propaganda. Bush critics have managed to devise a new ploy -- a "show" funeral, in which, instead of properly honoring the memory of the dead, the occasion is deliberately exploited for its propaganda value.
Shame on them.
