Yesterday was John McCain's funeral. I watched some of the eulogies when I got home from work and went through some serous tissue time. One of the bloggers that I read ranted about George W's presence, venting about the man's failed presidency. He totally missed the point, but then some people are so obtuse they will never be able to angle in on reason, and purpose. Democrats and Republicans were unified. And... who... was... missing? Who was specifically told not to show up? There were three eulogies, by a Democrat, by a Republican, and by a daughter. They all spoke of respect, and honor, and sacrifice, and all of them, while doing so, drove a nail into the political coffin of that one person who was told to "stay away."
I understand that as many in the nation watched, and wiped away quiet tears, this man who never gets an invitation, surrounded by snotty nosed leaches, cheated his way through a game of golf. His behavior is appropriate for one with no moral compass. Should we have expected anything else? His disapproval rating has hit an all time high, and his supporters are getting really angry. They are beginning to see his future is already lost. They are starting to understand he is going to be uninvited out of the White House. Their minority numbers are showing themselves to be rather small. The temperature is going up. They are beginning to sweat, not only the small stuff, but the big stuff as well. Almost daily we get to see another one of his compatriots pleading guilty, and flipping.
This whole thing is, well, rather funny because this is what they voted for: a scumbag who has been lying and cheating all of his life. A self-centered lout, he has colluded with anyone, and everyone, who could give him what he wanted. He is a living obstruction that will soon be flushed from the system.
Will he be eulogized when he's gone?
