In Lieu Of Flowers

ninme has a worthy candidate for "absolutely the funniest item of the day," but I submit this for your consideration. Poor Charlotte McCourt, 84, passed away this week outside Reno. She once worked for the Senate Majority Leader. From her obituary:
We believe that Mom would say she was mortified to have taken a large role in the election of Harry Reid to U.S. Congress. Let the record show Charlotte was displeased with his work. Please, in lieu of flowers, vote for another more worthy candidate.
Alas, notes Matthew Archbold:
the fact that she's a dead Democrat means she'll probably be voting for Reid no matter what this year.
Even if ninme still wins, surely this takes the bloom off "absolutely"?
