Beautiful, Bipartisan Moment Outshines Ugly Drama at McCain Funeral

Around the nation, there is certainly a sense of disgust traveling from mouth to mouth, coast to coast.

We The People haven’t exactly been well represented over the course of the last few decades.  Millionaire politicians and their heavyweight industry friends have practically squeezed the last few dimes that they’re going to out of the American electorate.  The feeling in the air is of indignant rage and palpable putsch.  There is little room left for the trappings of dignity, at least according to those who pursue their fame by stoking the fires of division in the corporate media.

That being said, it is righteous to argue that moments of blissful confluence and bipartisanship should be celebrated, and done so with a bit of dignity and gravity.

Trending: Fuel for Thought

A moment between former first families has gone viral — as former President George W. Bush is caught passing a piece of candy to former First Lady Michelle Obama during the memorial service for the late Sen. John McCain on Saturday.

As former Sen. Joe Lieberman paid tribute to his friend and colleague, the camera turned to the audience as Lieberman made a joke about McCain, catching the brief moment between the former president and former first lady.

George W. Bush and Michelle Obama have been observed for their seemingly close bond.

Folks, make no mistake:  This is what it is all about.

Humanity is not our politics.  Nor is it our wealth, fame, outward virtue, or our inward shame.  Humanity is the relationship that we nurture with one another, and our ability to communicate with civility.

John McCain was a master of this, and there is no doubt that George W. Bush was sublimely and subliminally honoring him is this regard.
