Bush Still Won't Attend Soldiers' Funerals

-- by Dave Johnson

President Bush has yet to attend even a single soldier's funeral. But now at least we know why.

AlterNet: Blogs: PEEK: Bush finally explains why he won't attend U.S. soldiers' funerals,

From a Stars & Stripes interview via Edward M. Gomez, the president finally addresses the reason he hasn't been to a single funeral:
Bush, who famously dodged the regular-forces draft during the Vietnam War era, then went AWOL from his National Guard duty post in Texas, said: "Because which funeral do you go to? In my judgment, I think if I go to one I should go to all. How do you honor one person but not another?"
Or: There's too danged many! Yeah, like, over 2500 now.
