Ahhh Damn Jesse, Part 2

Ok, here's my take on it....

Jesse Jackson is, was, and always will be, an asshole. I've known this for a while, considering he's a local boy and the favorite of the media around here. The idea of him NOT being the most important person in any given room is so foreign a concept to him that he's not quite sure how to handle it.

Some discussion on this matter has resulted in 2 different thoughts on the matter...
1. Jesse knew that mic was hot and went for it... afterall, he's the media darling now for a few minutes...
2. Jesse didn't know that mic was hot and just freakin' lost his mind...

I had one conversation that even suggested that maybe he is having a moment of professional envy and this was just a lapse in judgement. I disagree. The words that came from his mouth were words considered carefully and the undertone of hatred under them is palpable. Jesse has said evil things about people before.

Now, this wouldn't be a problem, cus we have have moments of envy, but Jesse, the angel, professes to be a pastor in the Christian Church who keeps messing up. His illegitimate child is what now - 14? His "religious empire" supposedly provided for the education of his sons...

what else can be said?

No... I'm not judging the man....who am I to do that. I'm just amused at it all. The human spirit is a funny creature, isn't it?

How are we supposed to handle "competition"? Don't we realize that at some point, we won't be the top dog? Shouldn't we WANT to "retire"?

The leaders of the black community who were kings of societial oneupsmanship in the 60s, 70s and 80s all seem to be having a little trouble with Mr. Obama. Some say its because Obama sees them for what they are and always have been: just one of the many special interest groups trying to get in with this campaign. Obama has made it clear, there will be no glad handing, noone gets special treatment. Old school civil rights leaders don't know how to handle that, I suppose.

Oh well...

sigh...
damn Jesse... just damn
