Honoring Coretta Scott King

Conservatives will howl, but Joseph Lowery honored Coretta Scott King in the only decent way possible-- by advocating for the poor and dispossesed whose lives have been devastated by rightwing policies:

We know now there were no weapons of mass destruction over there. [Standing Ovation] But Coretta knew and we know that there are weapons of misdirection right down here. Millions without health insurance. Poverty abounds. For war billions more but no more for the poor.
