Did they let the Daily Kos crowd out of their moms’ basements for the Nelson Mandela memorial service in South Africa today?
They booed George Bush? Seriously?

And yet, George and Laura Bush remained classy and respectful as always with a standing ovation for President Obama’s eulogy.

Beautiful and profound eulogy from one eloquent speaker to another. Bush was first to rise for the standing ovation. #MandelaMemorial

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas was also reportedly booed during the memorial. Nah, just kidding.

Bush’s work in Africa speaks louder than any chorus of boos.
If Prez Bush were booed in South Africa, it speaks to profound ignorance/ungrateful-ness re his work to combat AIDS on the continent

George W Bush was booed at Nelson Mandela's funeral? Nevermind that Bush has done more than any politician on earth for Africa.
