Smilin' Norm -- quiet on his father's passing

Posted by: Hammer / 1:16 PM

I very, very rarely have anything kind to say about Senator Norm Coleman. When I read the news about his father's death, I decided I had no comment on it. I try to focus on Coleman's politics, not his personal life.

Apparently the decision not to extend condolences was in poor form. I'm with Spotty on this:

Spotty, you offered your condolences, didn't you?

No grasshopper he did not. Spot has never met the senator, well maybe they did play "shake" once, and Spot doubts that Coleman reads the Cucking Stool. So what's the point?

Well, Mitch would have felt better.

And that's Spot's job?

I guess not.

I'll go one better -- the machinery that manufactured fake controversy over the deaths of Paul and Sheila Wellstone has no business telling anyone how to observe others' grief. Ever. The shameful manipulation of grief for political gain was beyond all bounds of human decency.
