Thank you sir, may I have another...


So, you are the President. Your job is a constant barrage of meetings, split decisions and no win press events.

Wahoo.

A noted civil rights figure dies. You attend her funeral and are subjected to harangues from one of your predecessors (who ranks among the most mediocre) and inflammatory idealogues masquerading as pious men of the cloth.

Fun in the sun, yessir.

How can your press events be "no win" when your audience is prescreened and handpicked? I thought it was kind of nice to see him out and about in front of people who he knew would openly disagree with him. If the White House didn't know this was going to turn into a political event, they were sorely mistaken. Frankly, he handled himself surprisingly well for one so unused to it.

But, as Arovisis says, expect the swift boating of Coretta Scott King to begin.....

The funeral is not a press event...it is a funeral, everyone knew that, except for Jimmy "Nuts" Carter.
