I was amused to read about this comment from Jackson. It was no surprise.
McCain = Dole, pretty much, unfortunately.
This depresses me.
And I suspect Obama will he a horrible president, somewhere on a continuum between Jimmy Carter and Robert Mugabe. Of course, I hope I’m wrong. My fondest hope is that he will be an unprincipled opportunist who shades to the center, instead of to the Left. As a best case scenario, Obama would be more or less Clinton II.
But that seems too good to reasonably hope for.
So, in light of the foregoing, to be fair, I might as well say one, small, favorable thing about Obama.
His mere existence has made the old-time Black political shake-down artists like Jackson and Sharpton, look obsolete, out-of-touch, and — best of all — absurd.
This is no small achievement.
Simple demographic attrition would have done it sooner or later. But better that we rid our public life of such people sooner rather than later.
Obama’s candidacy has made Jackson into a nullity.
Obama has destroyed Jackson.
That is why Jackson wants to cut Obama’s nuts off.
