Have Another Drinkee, Senator
This illustrates the reason that state funerals are traditionally not held at night. Especially during the holiday season.
"In the nation's darkest hour, Gerald Ford lived his finest moment. . . . He knew the road to national healing began with the courage to forgive," said Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), the Senate's president pro tem, who also spoke at the state funeral.
To give the senator the benefit of the doubt, the Civil War, World Wars One and Two, the Kennedy Assassination, 9/11, et al., may have simply slipped Sen. Stevens' mind.
No reasonable American can seriously consider the comeuppance of the crooked Richard Nixon as being "the nation's darkest hour."
