It was surreal watching Duhbya Bush squirm and twitch as he listened to speakers at Coretta Scott King's funeral. It may have actually been the first time he has ever come face to face with real live opposition to him and his so-called policies.

Boy in the bubble - meet the real world. Believe it or not, partner, support for you is miniscule at best. Hide all you want from reality. History will judge you harshly at best.

William Rivers Pitt wrote an excellent op/ed on this.



This was a day for speaking truth to power, but it was more than that. Mr. Bush and his people have worked incredibly hard to keep this president from hearing anything that rubs against what he believes to be true. He speaks before hand-picked crowds of adoring supporters, never once seeing the face of someone who thinks he is running the nation into the ground. Millions upon millions of protesters have followed his every move, and yet it is almost certain he has never laid eyes upon a single one of them.

On Tuesday, by his own design. George W. Bush was trapped like a rat on that stage. He was forced to listen to eloquent denunciations of his politics and his policies, perhaps for the first time since he took office. The effect upon him was clear; during the speeches delivered by Rev. Lowery and president Carter, Bush looked as if he was sucking on a particularly bitter lemon.

When one speaks truth to power, especially arrogant power, that is usually the effect. Coretta Scott King would have approved.

Well this is what happen when Bush get to meet real people and not the groomed and hand pick crowd that he is always surrounded by when he does his public appearances.
