John McCain and the Candy

The next day, we had John McCain’s funeral – more notable for people who were not there (or purposely banned) than for those who were.  I will say it did my heart good to see Laura Bush hand Michelle Obama a piece of candy – talk about reaching across the aisle!  However, one gesture left me a bit cold.  Is it acceptable in the Episcopal tradition for a reverend to take a selfie?  First, do reverends typically carry their cell phone during a service, let alone a funeral?  Secondly, isn’t it at least a little rude to ask George W. for a selfie when Obama is standing right next to you?  Reminds me of when I ran into Joanna Cassidy at the Emmys, but I’ll save that for another time.
