As I am typing this, I am watching a RAGING debate between two gals (one white, the other black) who keep referring to each other as "girlfriend" about whether or not Jesse Jackson should go to Afghanistan to try and broker a deal for the hostages, Bin Laden and his cohorts... Fair enough, it's a free country with freedom of speech.... HOWEVER, over on Fox, they are reporting that the Taliban NEVER invited Jesse Jackson over to negotiate anything!! Earlier this morning, I saw an "adjusted" report from Jackson's camp on Foxnews that stated he was contacted by "the families".. But that sure as heck isn't what he was saying yesterday... But anywho... I say send him. What do we really have to lose anyways? There is the old Chris Rock joke about Jesse Jackson negotiating with terrorists... "If you really wanna p*ss them off, give the hostages to me!" All they can do is tell him "no".... I do have to say that this is somehow familiar to what I've read following the assasination of Dr Martin Luther King in regards to Jesse's grandstanding for the media.. Last night on MSNBC, someone stated that King's widow accussed Jackson of smearing King's blood on himself and then heading straight for the news cameras.. What a piece of work this guy is..... Any takers?? Should we let him go?
