Sundays Shootout will feature Russ Stewart giving his predictions of how the aldermanic runoffs will come out and Bernie Stone, alderman of the 50th who will talk to us on the phone from a large coffee reception in his ward.
Take a read of the Reverend Jesse L. Jacksons response to his own charge of Hymietown made against Jews nationally and Jews in New York. This is the slickest change of subject I have ever heard. Im indebted to Zay Smith of the popular Sun-Times column QT (for Quick Takes) for this reproduction of the Jackson colloquy with Meredith Vieira of NBC-TVs Today Show.
Asked how he equated Don Imus nappy-headed hos reference to his earlier reference to Hymietown, Jackson said:
Well, if its repetitious and if its a pattern that is one question but the broader context here, I must say, is Shaquanda Cotton being sent to jail for seven years for pushing a hall monitor: We come out of March Madness with all the blacks on the basketball court
Hows that for a hard-hitting responsive answer?
Liberals to Use Imus as Pretext.
Anyone who has been following the Don Imus show knows that he has been an equal opportunity insulter of basic values. For example, repeatedly on the show his producer has uttered the expression I hate Jesus Christ! Nothing happened to him at any point although assuredly if he had insulted Muhammad there would have been literal hell to pay.
Now liberals are taking advantage of the egregious insult to a black basketball team to put an anti-white wing spin to it, talking about the need to shut down so-called hate radio. This would be advantageous if indeed they capture the presidency and the power to appoint the chairman of the FCC. Expect that the so-called and mis-named Fairness Doctrine might return which mandates equal time given to all points of viewwhich means that in the absence of anyone able enough to match a Limbaugh or Medved on the air, the Limbaugh and Medved shows would be shut down in the interest of, ahem, fairness.
Pop Song Trivia Contest.
Here is a snatch of lyric from a popular song that Frank Nofsinger will know (no search engine please):
As we eye/ The blue horizons bend/ Earth and sky/ Appear to meet and end/ But its merely an illusion/ Like your heart and mine/ There is no sweet conclusion.
The name of the song and who made it popular?
