“The first lady, Education Secretary Arne Duncan and White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett attended the funeral,” cnn.com reports. That would be the funeral for Hadiya Pendleton, the 15-year-old girl gunned down by gang bangers in The Windy City. Today, “Nearly 7,000 people, including former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and her husband, attended the service [for ex-Navy SEAL Chris Kyle]. Dozens of military personnel and others were seated in front of the podium near the Dallas Cowboys’ star at midfield, where Kyle’s coffin was placed at the beginning . . . Kyle completed four tours of duty in Iraq and wrote the best-selling book ‘American Sniper.'” It may seem indelicate to ask, but shouldn’t the First Lady, the VP or some top Obama aide have attended Kyle’s funeral?
