Okay...what the hell is Jesse Jackson thinking?

I've been pretty much stewing on the comments Jesse Jackson made about Barack Obama this past week and wondering...

Really? Is that the legacy you want to leave the world? You couldn't get the presidency, so you say some stupid shit that has all the class and dignity of high school lunch table? I mean, isn't it bad enough that you and Al Sharpton are lumped together as the Dynamic Duo if Black American outrage EVERY time somebody has been "wronged" and is in need of a soundbite?

I mean, do you really want to be remembered more for this and illegitimate children than your presence in the fight for Civil Rights in America? Really?

Let's not even discuss the use of the "N" word while you spoke to the reporter. Classy. A word you fought to have erased from the language of Americans, a word that was beneath your legacy...until now. Fabulous. Watch it on YouTube over and over so you can see the moment you became not only a joke, but irrelevent.
