Several conservative bloggers have been repeating this misinformation (which they probably read on other rightwing blogs and news sites):

"We do know from every media source that three representatives from the White House will attend Brown's funeral tomorrow. I think that at least one of those representatives went to school with Michael Brown's mother back in high school.

In contrast, there was not a single representative from the Obama administration at the recent burial of Major General Greene at Arlington National Cemetery."

The above claim is TOTALLY WRONG. This is what happens in the right wing blog sphere. They read a false claim and it spreads like wildfire.

The fact is that President Obama's cabinet officer, Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel attended Major General Greene's funeral.

Will the right wing blogs and news sites retract their abominable lie?

Of course not.

"Right-wing media outlets criticized the Obama administration over news that three administration officials planned to attend shooting victim Michael Brown's funeral, citing the myth that the White House failed to send representation to the funeral of Maj. Gen. Harold Greene, who was killed in Afghanistan -- In reality, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel attended the two star general's service."

Easy to understand.  Robert Reich speaks directly on what the 'public option' is and why it is so important to health care reform.

I have been horribly betrayed by the Democrats as a gay man, as a liberal, as an atheist, and as a middle class American. If the Democrats are so corrupt and classist that they join the Republicans in blocking the bare minimum of a public option for health insurance, the Democratic Party is a lost cause.

Those pieces of walking garbage should have passed a single payer healthcare plan by now. I will vote against every incumbent Democrat on the ballot and go strictly Green if they tell me to shut up and die without healthcare by opposing the public option.
