When No One Raises a Question - No One Knows

Fox host Bill O'Reilly falsely claimed that "no Republicans and no conservatives were invited" to participate in attend the anniversary of the March on Washington. That is, as we say in America, bullshit.
These Republicans were invited:

 Invited to cover for either Bush - Had "other plans"

 Busy in his home state on recess, Wyoming.  Wait, Wyoming isn't his home state?  Well, something very important was going on there.

“We had a very concerted effort, because this is not a political moment,” said Rep. Leah Daughtry, executive producer of the (50th Anniversary of Martin Luther King's Speech) commemoration. “This was about us coming together as a community, so we wanted to be sure that we had all political representations,” Daughtry said. “We attempted very vigorously to have someone from the GOP participate and unfortunately they were unable to find someone who was able to participate.”
RNC chairman Reince Priebus pointed to the fact that Republicans held their own King commemoration Monday, inviting only blacks who are Republicans. Sounds like a fun time — a separate but equal celebration.
