Jesse Jackson wants to, uh, rip Obama

Here’s what’s supposedly coming up on Hannity and Colmes:

Hannity also intimated that Jackson says he wants to “rip Obama’s nuts off” on the tape. Hannity would not say “nuts,” but based on his description (portion of the male anatomy beginning with an “n”) I believe that’s the word he was going for.

I suspect this is the start of “Obama isn’t Black enough.” You knew it was coming.

    Nope. CNN is going out of it’s way to make nice with Rev. Jackson today–a whole hour of face-saving. He is kind of like the Clintons–doesn’t want to share the stage. Jackson is right when he talks about Obama inheriting the last leg of relay started by others, but that doesn’t mean everyone should have to kiss up to him because he ran early on.

  2. BrkfldDad says:

    An African-American author on Fox today noted that in research for a book she just wrote, that less than 12% of African-Americans she surveyed said that Reverends Jackson and/or Sharpton spoke for them. She noted that Obama is for a united America, whereas the Reverends are for a us vs. them America. She felt that the comments by Jackson were a very real and frustrating demonstration of his concern that Obama could be healing the very fractures Jackson has worked so hard to enlarge!

    She also brought up a great point. If he really didn’t mean his comment to be true, and was unaware of the mic being on, why did he whisper what he said???

  3. He’s just sorry that the “poverty pimp” gig may be up.

    P.S. He can smell a camera and a mic a mile away. I doubt he was unaware.

  4. Obama certainly got his start in the “use vs. them” world of Black America. He’s walked away for a bigger piece of the pie.

    Read the book.

  5. Jesse Jackson is irrelevant, and he has been for years. He and Al Sharpton are each a shell of what they once were.

  6. Kathryn says:

    What is the world coming to? Al Sharpton and Pat Buchanan are both sounding moderate and sensible lately.

  7. Kathryn says:

    Cindy, I confess to being bored by the book. I usually enjoy biographies/memoirs, but I don’t want to slog through everything he ever thought someone else might be thinking/feeling/acting out. Can you be persuaded to share the spoilers?

  8. Kathryn, if you have the paperback, skip to about page 275. You want to catch the first time he hears Wright preach. Then the whole third part, about Kenya, is pretty interesting. That might catch your attention.
