Persist to resist, fight back. Not with a fist, with tact.

From the "What the Hell Was She Drinking?" files:

This week Catherine Baker Knoll, the Lt. Governor of Pennsylvania, apparently crashed a funeral for a Marine killed in action recently in Iraq. She just showed up and started passing out her business card, in what looks like the dumbest campaign stop in history.
Not satisfied with the impression she was making on the mourning family and friends, she reassured them with the comforting thought that "I want you to know our government is against this war."
Ex-fucking-scuse me?? This is what you think a family wants to hear about their son and husband? "Sorry he's dead and all, but aren't you glad it was for nothing? You know, because I hate the things he fought and died for. Ha! What a kick in the ass, huh?"

Would you like some tact with that ma'am?

How about a fucking clue?

Blackfive has more about the Marine, SSgt Joseph Goodrich, here.
Ed Rendell, the Governor of Pennsylvania, can be contacted here. I'm sure he wouldn't mind you dropping him a little love note about his administration.

I think I broke my jaw when it dropped to the ground. That's disgraceful.
