West Virginia Miners Memorial Service Turns Into Obama Campaign Rally

This brings back memories of Paul Wellstone’s memorial service — except in that case at least the decedent was in fact in politics and those carrying out the disrespectful display were fellow politicians who couldn’t manage to remove themselves from campaign mode long enough to get through an entire memorial service.

This is just plain sad. Notice at no point does Obama try to quiet the crowd and remind them that the somber occasion isn’t about him (pause for laughter):

There’s no better way to mourn the loss of many families loved ones by having some jackass yell “WE LOVE YOU BARACK OBAMA!” during their memorial service.

At least he didn’t try to sell anybody an Obama t-shirt — as far as I know.
