Fill in the blank. Obama has enraged the right because
he is not attending Supreme Court Justice Scalia’s funeral. Joe Biden will attend.
Never mind that it is not at all uncommon for Presidents to skip the funerals of Supreme Court Justices. I wonder if conservatives were equally bent out of shape when George W Bush and Dick Cheney skipped Supreme Court Justice Byron White’s funeral? I’m guessing not.
And I can guarantee to that if Obama did attend Scalia’s funeral, the right would butch about the cost. Or maybe they would get their undies in a bundle because “that classless Muslim, Kenyan, Socialist just wants to grab attention and feed his ego.”
They are nothing if not predictable. You might recall, many on the right were furious when Obama made the call to take out Osama bin Laden and got credit.
