Breaking: Ferrer Mourns Rosa Parks

Here’s one for the annals of rapid response: The Ferrer campaign is out with its statement on the death of Rosa Parks…who died Monday.

In the last few days, we have lost two leaders and defenders of the principles of social justice and democracy. The passing of Rosa Parks, a mother of the civil rights movement, and of Congressman Edward Roybal, a tireless Mexican-American leader and symbol of the growing strength of the Hispanic community in the U.S., inspires us to keep up the fight for an American society in which Democratic values and opportunities are available to all. I join in the mourning, remembrance, and celebration of these inspirational lives that opened the doors to diversity in this country.

The Politicker eagerly awaits Mike’s statement on the death of Ronald Reagan.

(There’s been some question about whether it’s fair to “pick on Freddy while he’s down.” The view around here is that to start averting ones eyes for the last days doesn’t exactly do Ferrer a favor.)
