Elected Moron Official Disrupts Marine's Funeral

I have come to the realization of just why so many celebrities and politicos have handlers: They absolutely need them. A huge number of these people just do not possess the common sense G-d gave a goose, and if unminded would inflict their idiocy of the public to such an extent as to render themselves unelectible or unpopular at the box office or whatever other venue by which they hustle their over-inflated salaries.

Let's take a case in point. In Indiana, PA this past week the Goodrich family gathered to mourn the passing of their loved one, Staff Sgt. Joseph Goodrich, a young Marine who had died for his country during the war in Iraq. The funeral was filled with uniformed Marines there to support the family and to honor their fallen comrade. Also well represented was the police force, of which he had also been a member.

And then there was the uninvited mourner.

Catherine Baker Knoll, the first female Lt. Governor of Pennsylvania who proudly proclaims this claim to fame on the state websites, entered the funeral unexpected, unwelcomed, and uninvited, sat near family members, interupted prayer during Communion to ask who one of them was, and passed out her business card.

And then, and here's the "good part" for those of you keeping score, she had the audacity to state to the grieving family, "I want you to know our government is against this war," further upsetting an already fragile situation.

This woman doesn't need a handler. She needs a keeper. Her boss, Gov. Ed Rendell needs to put a muzzle and a choke-chain on this idiot after she issues her formal apology to the Goodrich family. And please, make certain someone else writes it. I can only imagine the further damage she may inflict if allowed to use her own words. And no, I'm not going to give her political affiliation. You won't have any trouble finding that out on your own.

What THIS woman needs is a set of handcuffs on her and some bars keeping her in her cell.

Rope, tree, no questions asked.

Dig the grave an extra three feet deep, drop the bitch in and cover, then hold the funeral as planned.
