You Can't Make This Stuff Up

Watching Al Sharpton on Meet the Press lecture us on fiery rhetoric and its consequences. Um, Al? Remember Freddy's Fashion Mart in 1995? You can't make this stuff up, really.

I simply can't believe anyone takes this guy seriously as a commentator.


  1. I thought that Al Sharpton has come a long way, his vocabulary, and his dialog in general has greatly improved over the years. He makes as much sense as the rest of the lefties.

    Another thing about Al Sharpton you might be interested to know is that he does a great James Brown impression. I saw him sing the song "I Feel Good" on SNL, and he had the moves to go along with it, it wasn't bad at all.

  2. Re VR's comment. Talk about damning with faint praise. Classic!

  3. Terrence, What are you inferring by that remark?

    When Al Sharpton was considering a run for the 2008 presidential nomination, he made his rounds like they all did, and covered the same topics as the rest of the candidates. Al Sharpton’s campaign rhetoric was right in line with all of the other candidates, so he said basically the same things as they said, and I actually thought he said it better than most of the others because he injected his own style into each response, and some of it was pretty clever. Just like when he sang that song on SNL, it was tastefully done, in other words I kind of like his style.

    If you want to talk about damning praise just remember what Joe Biden said about Obama being a refreshing change for a black candidate, because he’s clean and articulate. I’m sure that didn’t sit well with Sharpton, or Jackson.

  4. VR, I would have to agree with you on some level. Sharpton is entertaining and has a unique style. And I've always thought he was so shameless as to be refreshing.

    However, as is the case with Ted Kennedy and Chappaquiddick, I simply cannot get past Sharpton's disgusting involvement in the Tawana Brawley case and his vicious defamation of Dutchess County prosecutor Steve Pagones.
