Jesse, of all people.

Anyone else surprised?

Fox: Jackson used the N-word during Obama remarks
9by Trish LaMonte
Thursday July 17, 2008, 3:36 PM


The Reverend Jesse Jackson has long been a vocal critic of other people's use of the N-word, now he's apologizing for using it himself. Fox News has confirmed Jackson uttered the racial slur while making critical remarks about Barack Obama earlier this month.

Jackson apologized in a statement Wednesday for "hurtful words" but didn't offer specifics.

Upon hearing the news Thursday, the Rev. Al Sharpton called it "disheartening."

Earlier this month, Jackson apologized to Obama for other crude remarks he made when he didn't realize his microphone was live during a taping for a Fox News show. The N-word part of those remarks was not made public until this week.

Bad news for Jesse, good news for Obama. History shows that if Jesse aligns himself with a candidate, that candidate is doomed to fail.

Rhymin man,
Tall and tan,
Rhyme or reason,
Play your hand --
Rhyme on this -- rhyme on that
Oh, you naughty democrat!

They say when doctor King got shot,
Jesse hatched an evil plot,
Dipped his hands in the doctors blood,
n rubbed his shirt like playin with mud
Looked around for all the press
n said: check me out, my name is jess!
Ill be known from towns n farms --
Doctor King died in my arms!

Rhymin man,
Tall and tan,
Rhyme or reason,
Play your hand --
Rhyme on this -- rhyme on that
Oh, you naughty democrat!

A few years later, legend says,
Rhymin man made a run for prez
Farrakhan made him a clown,
Over there near hymie-town
Said he was a diplomat --
Hobbin an-a-knobbin with arafat
Castro was simpatico,
But the u.s. voters, they said: no!

Rhymin man,
Tall and tan,
Rhyme or reason,
Play your hand --
Rhyme on this -- rhyme on that
Oh, you naughty democrat!

Okay, here we go again!
Rhymin man says hes your friend
Any fool can make a rhyme --
Cowboys do it all the time
People say: now hes mature!
Cowboys rhyme that with horse manure

Horse manure!
Thats for sure!
You been cheatin --
We kept score!
Are you this?
Or are you that?
Oh, you naughty
Democrat!

The problem is, there's no job to fire Jesse from.

For Jesse, declining as a media darling for all things Black-related, this just extends his time in the spotlight. Remember the famous phrase: all publicity is good publicity

I wonder if Jesse personally dislikes Obama, or is pissed that Obama's rise to the top has made Jesse irrelevant in the black community?

I think Jesse is jealous of Obama, and this will only push him further off the stage. Jesse jackson becomes pretty irrelevant now, and that's a good thing. No one cares what he says anymore.

For a long time, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharton were the "voice" of black America. If there is a black man in the White House, that takes away all the power they had, unless they are going to speak out against him, and we may well see more of that, as their power fades.

More fuel for the fire...but the double standard we have today will not allow the people who are righteous to act. It's not politically correct to punish anyone but white people.
Just more evidence that the Obama camp is rotten to the core.....

Jessie Jackson is simply extremely jealous of Obama's success. Obama is coming out of nowhere and probably will be our next president in a whirlwind. Meanwhile Jessie has gotten nowhere comparatively and he has spent a life getting there. You really can't blame Jackson for being jealous. Still, I'd like to see Jackson taken down for using the N work. That would be funny as hell.


And if Jackson can use the word what about everyone else?


Not that I want to use the word but.

Job security is the underlying issue for Jessah . But then again , if he and Sharpton dig enough , they'll find something to get them some facetime on the tube . While we're on the subject of these two jerks , remember the Duke lacrosse and Tawana Brawley fiascos ?

Q: Why were these guys never taken to task about their respective roles in these incidents ?

A: There are two sets of rules when it comes to hate speech .

One more thing , shouldn't you voluntarily drop the "Reverened" that precedes your name when you father illigitimate children ?

In 1988, Jesse Jackson won the Alabama Democratic primary over Al Gore and Michael Dukakis.

He couldn't have. Here's the condensed version:

Jackson disses Obama. Everyone disses Jackson.

Therefore, SPDB disses Obama.

Congrats, you just won nonsequitur of the week!

The reverend is just one of many people in the media today that don't really matter to me.

File along side of:

Ann Coulter
Rush Limbaugh
Wolf Blitzer
Sean Hannity
Bill Maher
Bill O' Reilly
Sharpton

I find that if you tune them out, for all intents and purposes...they disappear.
