Obituary of Donald Unsworth Attacks Obama

"A few months ago, a Nevada woman’s obituary called out Harry Reid and now, a recently departed man from Georgia is borrowing the tactic to attack President Obama from beyond the grave.

The National Review Online’s Jonah Goldberg scanned in this treat from the obituary of the late Donald Charles Unsworth:

“The family respectfully asked in lieu of flowers that memorial contributions be made to the American Cancer Society or to the campaign of whoever is running against President Barack Obama in 2012.”

When the Reid story hit last July, many people complained about the family using the memory of their loved one for political purposes. I’m not sure I agree with that. For all we know, these people actually used their last available strength to ask their family members to help turn their entire life into a quirky, quickly dated cable news anecdote."
