Bubba heartbroken to be left off Reagan funeral speakers' list

From Drudge:

Controversy develops over Reagan funeral speakers...

'President Clinton really held out all hope the funeral would be a nonpartisan event, like Nixon's was,' a top Clinton source said on Tuesday morning. 'He's angry and disappointed neither he nor President Carter have been asked to speak, as of yet'...

The top source says Clinton has been critical that both Bush presidents will address the crowd gathered at National Cathedral.

Former President George H.W. Bush, former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney will join President Bush in eulogizing Ronald Reagan, Reagan's office announced. Presiding over the service will be former Sen. John Danforth of Missouri, who is an ordained Episcopal priest. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor and the Rabbi Harold Kusher will give readings, while Irish tenor Ronan Tynan will sing.

Do you believe the audacity of this man?

What would he do: "I'm sorry Reagan's dead...Oh, by the way, buy my book! It's coming out next week at a bookstore near you!"

Of course, he'd follow it with a Nelson Muntz-like, "HA! Ha!"
