Sharpton and Jackson Vie for Liberal Attention

"Libs Gone Wild" or what?
Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson seem to be competing for an award as "America's Most Whacko," as both men jet off to different points on the map in order to gain even more public exposure as champions of the left. These highly transparent pundits of lunacy have leapt onto the latest political bandwagons faster than you can say "political posturing."

Al Sharpton, of late the most conspicuous of the two due to his laughable presidential candidacy in 2004 (it was his turn), has belatedly joined the Cindy Sheehan Circus (along with an even more laughable Martin Sheen). Never one to be at a loss for words, the "Reverend" took a break from posing with Mrs. Sheehan to say that she had become "the conscience of this nation."

Of course, the horde of different-minded folks across the street have a very different take on that. Maybe they figure that "America's Conscience" would not be someone who makes anti-American statements, such as "this country is not worth dying for?"

So what about Al? Is it possible that the good "Reverend" is still pining for his glory days as James Brown's touring manager - a gig he had for almost a decade (in fact the ONLY real job he seems to have ever held). Hey, he even kept the funky hair-do.

Jesse Jackson, the civil rights leader once thought (wrongly) to be heir-apparent to the truly honorable Martin Luther King Jr, has done some good things but should not get a free pass when he does something dubious - like flying out to Caracas, Venezuela to hobnob with Dictator Hugo Chavez.

Jackson is making these overtures because he feels that he needs to show his support to Chavez in the face of televangelist Pat Robertson's suggestion that he should be "taken out." So good old Jesse rushed off to calm the waters and (he wants us to think) save the day!

And as a self-appointed "Civil Rights Leader," perhaps it would be safe to assume that the good "Reverend" inquired from his new friend Chavez about his many politically motivated, ad hoc executions last year? Not bloody likely.

By the way, Pat Robertson IS A MORON -- but that is beside the point. He is a private citizen who ran off at the mouth - much like Jesse has in the past. (Unlike Jackson, Robertson apologized.)

Oh, and the Deranged Dictator Chavez, who REALLY HATES our government (and LOVES Fidel) and may very well cut off the oil we import from Venezuela, told Jackson he wanted to discuss the possiblility of sending oil at preferential terms to poor communities in the Untited States. I'm not making this up.

So, here are my questions:

--Who's CIVIL RIGHTS are these "civil rights leaders" trying to protect?
--If they are "Reverends," WHERE THE HELL ARE THEIR CHURCHES (hey, Pat has the 700 club)?
--How have these two snake-oil salesmen BS'd so many people?
--How long until someone calls them on their BS?

....oh wait, that would be ME!
