He should be hung by his nutsack.

Edit: And no, that's not meant to be a racist comment.

Look, I have friends that are black and most of them think the same way, he comes in and just tries to take the situation over for no reason at all except to get attention.

Why criticize him-he's just pandering like a typical politician. If its good enough for Bushlite, Delay, et al, then Jackson can certainly join the parade.

He must have run out of corporations to extort money from, for his "foundations" that keep him in the high life.

He might have done good works in the past, but if so that was many, many years ago. Now he's just a sleazy opportunist.

Because it's specifically to castigate Jesse "show me the money" Jackson rather than to discuss the merits of that case?

What a tool. He waits till her last few days of life before spouting his BS. He knows damn well there's nothing he can do about it this late in the game and just wants to get his name in the paper. Where the hell was he before they pulled the tube out and let her starve for a week and a half?

Jackson said he spoke with several state senators, pushing them to pass emergency legislation, and plans to contact more senators.
Will these egomaniacal a-holes ever just STFU?!?!

While he has sided with the Schindlers, Jackson said in a statement last week that he had "serious misgivings about the appropriateness of Congress intervening with the legal court process on a specific, individual matter."

Translation - While I whore the Shiavo spotlight for all it's worth, let me distance myself from Congressional Republicans so that people don't think I am siding with them on this.

Jesse Jackson is no better then these right wing religious zealots attempting to preach morality to America.

Oh really, Like when he negotiated the freedom of a white lady who was locked up on trumped up charges in Peru. I guess the 3 soldiers he got released, when even our government failed, shows he's a f'ing idiot. I could go on, but I have got outside and wipe you off of the bottom of my shoe, I step in you when I was coming in the house. Damn neighbor's dog was running loose again :p

well that answers this question

The Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, president of the Los Angeles-based Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny, noted the absence of black Christians in the debate.
"Nearly all the people fighting and protesting to keep Terri alive are white. Where are the prominent black ministers?" he asked.

Let's not make this a racial comment. He should be kicked out of the human race.

Nice to see that liberals, conservatives and independents can all still agree on something :)
