MLK Jr. would have loved me Day

Each year, in honor of one of our country’s bravest, most eloquent, educated, wise, and complicated leaders, a bunch of idiots capitalize on any tenuous connection they might make between their commercial interests and his “legacy.” Witness two I’ve discovered today, and keep in mind the holiday’s not until week-after-next:

1. Larry Ward, chairman of the national “Gun Appreciation Day” planned to take place the weekend of Obama’s inauguration, on CNN:

“I think Martin Luther King, Jr. would agree with me if he were alive today that if African Americans had been given the right to keep and bear arms from day one of the country’s founding, perhaps slavery might not have been a chapter in our history,” Ward said.

2. “I had a dream…that someday our people would celebrate racial and economic justice in the VIP Lounge.”
