1. Cool
I remember when they announced this on Jackie Robinson day. We seem to keep forgetting how hard so many worked for people to get the opportunities they have.

"In 1947, when went into the Major Leagues, we had just come out of a war," Kerry said. "We had a separate black flying unit. We still hadn't integrated the military, let alone sports. We hadn't integrated life in America. And it wasn't just on the baseball field. When he retired he opened up a bank in Harlem. He started doing low-income housing. He marched for civil rights. He helped to change the life in this country."

I now miss some of the great Bush screw ups but I just can't stand listening to him.

Before the election, during one of my more self-absorbed moments , I thought that Bush could NOT possible win because I literally could NOT stand to look or listen to him for another four years.

Sometimes people would start threads like "what will we do if Bush wins?" I never went into those because the idea was so horrible I couldn't figure out why people would torment themselves by even imagining it could happen.

The horror I'm now living w/ is compounded by the fact that I refused to admit it could possibly happen - right up until about 2 AM Nov. 3rd.

I've come far along enough that I no longer think death would have been preferable. It's close but not preferable. :cry:

and he sounds very gracious. He thanked * for coming.
*is staring at Kerry as though he was an annoyance.

Edit: I think JK graciously shook *'s hand. (Industrial strength Evil-Be-Gone is now nedessary.)

I'm not gracious at all, but that was a classy thing to do. Pics in all papers, but the Globe, tomorrow.)

And was talking about people marching for civil rights and Robinson fighting for his rights just what the hell was going through idiot *'s head. Because when him and Kerry were in Yale * use to call Kerry crazy all the time for fighting for the very thing they are celebrating now civil rights and people like Robinson.

21. wonderful speech--delivered with such sincerity!
:loveya:

It occurred to me, as he gave that speech, that he was recognizing in Jackie Robinson the same characteristics that he himself has! Speaking of Robinson joining the military to serve his country, of continually standing up for what is right; wanting to make what is wrong in this country right. It takes one to know one--a real American patriot and hero. (and didn't he look adorable today?)

24. I was thinking the same things.
Lots of parallels. I loved when all the members of the Congressional Black Caucus stood. You know, the repugs can try to coopt this ceremony, but they don't get it, and they never will.

JK looks wonderful. :loveya:

31. I know
he doesn't even seem to be listening.

When JK thanked * for being there, his words were correct, but I didn't get the feeling that he thought * to be above him in any way. It was more like, "nice of you to come and join my party", not,"oh thank you for making this legitimate". His voice was so good to hear.

Oh, why does JK have to be so crushingly intelligent, articulate, insightful, distinguished, decent, and just plain nice, as well as being such so stunningly handsome? I'm not going to be able to focus now for the rest of the day!

25. Jackie Robinson deserves this
Edited on Wed Mar-02-05 02:01 PM by TayTay
he was a great and courageous man. He died young and many people believe that Jackie was worn out from all the fighting he had to do. (I think he was only 53.) He was a true hero. And he changed the world.

I loved Rev. Jackson's line (probably paraphrased.)
Many have followed Jackie Robinson
Few have followed Branch Rickey.

So True!

As an aside, I am so proud of my State Dems for doing this. And thank you to the Rombinson Family for allowing this to happen. It is vastly overdue.

35. This is a good ceremony
They did a good job. It is very fitting that the Red Sox had their congressional reps sponsor this. The Red Sox were the last major league team to integrate and that they had a chance to sign Jackie Robinson and treated him horribly at the tryout. Maybe, just maybe this is, in a small way, a chance to say, "We were sorry, and we were stupid." Karma.

(Really, Jackie Robinson was a hero of mine. First bio I did was on him. Another reason I became a Dem.)

And so does his wife and family. I just wish they had more speakers that are truly genuine in their feelings. Like Kerry, Jackson, the gentlemen from the NAACP, etc. This is too special a moment not to have.

He would have been 86, so she must be in her 80's at least. (Not sure.) They met when both were attending UCLA. She married, had kids, supported her husband through his career. She returned to school, eventually got her Masters in Nursing and was an assistant Prof at Yale. (Needless to say, that is one poised and accomplished woman. Wow!)

He's so outclassed!

No handshake at the end, either--JK went in the other direction--good!

Wasn't the kiss sweet? Right in front of the microphone--smack, on Ms. Robinson's cheek.

Bush didn't kiss her, and really didn't seem to be enjoying being there at all. Phoney!

kiss? (Okay, no brainer, sorry. I know there isn't enough Evil-Be-Gone mouthwash in the whole wide world for *, yuck, kisses.) And that was a smacker of a kiss, I heard it on the mic.

No handshake and * only mentioned Kerry in passing and to steal one of his lines. Kerry was very gracious and kept in the spirit of the occasion. * is a goon.

EDIT: There was a handshake. I was wrong. I will now go home and eat huge quantities of humble pie. See photo downthread.

48. LOL
That reminds me. When I was listening to idiot because he was out of place at a event for civil rights people and all. I don't care if the idiot does like baseball he was very uncomfortable being around people he has made fun of all his life including Kerry for supporting and fighting for civil rights. He use to say Kerry was crazy all the time when they were in Yale because of all his work and efforts when it came to that very issue.

Anyhow when he brought it up about JK being right about the military part Kerry just sat their with this grin on his face like he truly wanted to LHAO and the look was like "Yeah you phony ass bastard where were you?" And if you noticed he dropped that part pretty quick. But to me Kerry just looked as if he seriously wanted to laugh at him. And I think Kerry was like me thinking about what a damn phony this idiot truly is. I bet you if you had a way to ask and find out one of the things that went through Kerry's mind is all the crap idiot said when they were in Yale and yet he was standing there being one of the biggest phony's of all time putting on a show for people.

I kinda get the feeling JK enjoys getting in *'s face. Especially on an occasion like this, when he had * so visibly outclassed to anyone who was watching. It's like that grin is saying, "Still here, a**hole. Still on your case."

This goes far beyond the limits of bipartisanship. These people are trying to destroy our country as we know it. So it's a choice between being a good sport, and going along with the destruction, or standing apart and fighting for America.

The reign of the Neocons: worse than Nixon, Reagan, and Poppy combined!

56. Damn
What a time for WEL to desert the forum. This is her pic all the way. It just screams 'Oh WEL, come on out and play."

Sigh! The demands of college and all. I understand. The LLL can wait.

60. that asshole is supposed to be the President ?
he still looks crappy and intimidated by Kerry as he did in the debates . he looks scared. he is a small man and deep down he knows it and can't hide it . you see it when he is in the company of real men like Kerry.

if someone had been in a coma for since since election day or before and just woke up now, judging from the pic itself who would they think is the President.

55. Sounds like Smirky was there for some comic relief.
Didn't work. He sounded so ignorant and drunk. His speech is so elementary compared to Kerry's, which didn't sound rehearsed but presidental.

59. He never disappoints.....
Bravo John, bravo!

Man I can't wait till 2008, then I won't have to check C-Span every ten minutes to see if his voice is on the T.V. I miss his voice sometimes :)

Most people listen to music, I listen to a nice John Kerry speech. Ahhh music to my ears.
