In Lieu of Flowers Donate to Obama’s Opponent

The obituary of Mr. Donald Charles Unsworth asks that people donate to Obama's opponent rather than sending flowers.

My wife forwards the obituary of a Mr. Donald Charles Unsworth from the Rome News-Tribune:

The key bit:  “In lieu of flowers the family respectfully asked that donations be sent to the American Cancer Society or to the campaign of who ever is running against President Obama in 2012.”

    Wait – am I donating to the Green candidate?  The Libertarian?  The Constitution Party candidate?  The Communist Party candidate?  The Natural Law Party candidate?  I’m confused….

  2. James Joyner says:

    I’d give to ’em all just to be safe.  Depending on your love for Mr. Unsworth, of course.

    I guess a hate-induced heart attack finally took ol’ Unsworth.  He was probably watching Fox at the time.

  4. John Burgess says:

    Hey! Is Harry Reid commenting here? Coolbeanz. At least we can get the talking points strait from the horse’s ‘mouth’!

  5. reid says:

    No Harry, and no talking points.  I hope you can do the same.

    Didn’t know that Obama Derangement Syndrome was fatal.
