Where was the outrage when other media characterized Bush and Channey as Nazis and like Hitler?

The Post may have overstepped, but where is the moral equivalency?

Alvin Sharptoon, Whata guy, gotta say one of the best grifters in the business. Hides behind the Reverend label. Not bad work, if you can get it. No Carny would hire him though, because he'd run with the profits. Only thing he has going for him, is his mouth. Put a piece of tape over that, and you have an average Alvin.

Ever wonder how folks like Sharpton and Jackson actually make a living? I mean, what is the specific mechanism by which they generate income -- and indeed, wealth? Clearly it involves making a big deal out of ridiculous things like this non-issue and then making sure it stays in the headlines... but how do they translate it into income?

Here are some suggestions for the cartoonist over at the N.Y. Post:

Show the police shooting a penguin with the caption reading:

Now, who will they get to sign off on pedophile and homosexual activity in the catholic church.

Show the police shooting a penguin with a matza in his hand and gefilte fish in his mouth with the caption reading:

Now, who will they get to sign off on the killing of the Palestine people in the Gaza strip.

Show the police shooting Tony Soprano with the caption reading:

Now, who will they get to sign off on mafia criminal activity.

Show the police shooting David Duke with the caption reading:

Now, who will they get to sign off on Domestic terrorism and Klan activity.

If you want to make a statement, call the companies mentioned in this article and let them know that you will not buy anything as long as they support Al Sharpton. Maybe if these companies know that it will affect their business, they will develop a backbone and stand up to this blackmailer.

I think it's time for OBAMA to have a meeting whith this MORON Sharpton. While Obama said he wanted to UNITE our country, this ONE DUMB A/S/S is doing EVERYTHING he can to DIVIDE our country. ENOUGH. And the dumb a/s/s media is giving him FUEL. ENOUGH!!!!
The depicted Bush as a monkey for YEARS. This was also a target at the ADMINISTRATION, NOT Obama.
Time to MUZZLE SharpTON. Martin Luther King Jr. must be spinning in his grave. ALL the good he did was in vain.
