42. The "black community" deserves better than Al Sharpton
Sharpton was good as a court jester role in the debates in 2004.

But when you really look at Sharpton's past, the man is an amusing opportunist who feels that he has been appointed king of the "black community".

What's funny about the OP that posted this article is that he/she is a Senator Clinton shill. Obama gave his support for Lieberman during the primary, but not after Lieberman lost that race. It's a great way for some Senator Clinton fans to play dirty pool and is expected, since people that I consider absolute dirtbags are integral in her campaign. That's not a surprise by any means.

What this OP has done is typical disingenuous, pathetic desparation to somehow sway people to who many consider an unwinnable candidacy. So be it.
