Is it open season on military funerals?

Last month it was these folks, who seem all to have misplaced their copies of "How To Win Friends and Influence People", who made themselves obnoxious to the world by disrupting the funeral of a Green Beret killed in action in Afghanistan.

This month it is the Lieutenant Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania who considers the funeral of a Marine sergeant killed in action an appropriate place to set up her own travelling political medicine show. The story is here. Some of the outraged commentary can be found here and here.

Beneath contempt, the lot of them.
