Comments: Is nothing sacred? Moonbat politician crashes Marine's funeral

I have observed that Death brings out the worst in some of the living. For sure.

What a vile, uncaring person. I wrote her and told her so.

How do we get ahold of her. I would like to give her a piece of my mind!

It's hard to know exactly what happened, however, especially since the only family member who has talked about this matter, Rhonda Goodrich, is a Republican political activist herself, and not even a member of the direct family.

It apparently wasn't even a private funeral, as it was mentioned in the obituaries, which was why Knoll, local firemen, Marines, and local police were all present. That said, it would've been the tactful thing to do to call the family ahead of time. Knoll has apparently attended several funerals for soldiers and claims she was trying to give someone there her card so that the family had someone to contact if they needed any assistance.

She has done the right thing by apologizing, and claims that Goodrich misquoted her, so unless any members of rhe immediate family come forward, it's anyone's guess what was really said or intended. As someone who has lost a friend in Iraq, though, I hope this will encourage politicians to depoliticize their appearances at such funerals in the future.
