George Bush At Coretta Scott King's Funeral: "Black Folks Still Love Me!"

2/8/06

Looking much like a man who mistakenly wandered into the wrong movie, but was gamely determined not to ruin the scene, George W. Bush attended the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta for the funeral service of Coretta Scott King. Mr. Bush had a seat in a place of honor…right behind the speakers podium, where the Reverend Joseph Lowery and former President Jimmy Carter praised both the late Mrs. King and, according to White House officials, the President’s policies.

Unnamed White House Source Wegman (Pudgy) Waterhouse, speaking on the condition of anonymity said, ” It was really heartwarming. President Carter expressed his gratitude for the fact that Americans were lucky enough to have some of the Coretta’s and Dr. King’s most personal thoughts and words on tape due to the illegal government wiretapping in the Civil Rights Movement of the Fifties and Sixties. The Rev. Lowery thanked God that there were no Weapon Of Mass Destruction in Iraq, thereby taking the pressure off Mr. Bush for not finding any. He’d been secretly feeling pretty bad about that for awhile now but after all, not finding any was a good thing too.”
