Big Memorial Tomorrow

I hear it's the death of television news and you'll be able to watch all day long. So Honduran junta dudes: now's your chance to whack Zelaya. Iranian mullahs: throw a blanket over Mousavi and throw him in a hole. Chinese commies: kill the hell out of those Uighurs. No one in America will notice.

This just in: It's rumored that Rev. Sharpton will conduct a human sacrifice of Rep. King for his blasphemy tomorrow. Actually, if something like that were to happen, the event might be worth watching. Nothing against King, though; I just mean human sacrifice in the abstract.

That makes me think: if we offered fans an opportunity to be sacrificed to speed their idol's journey to heaven, do you doubt that someone would volunteer?

You need to work on your comedy act, Sammy.

A group of Jackson fans have begun a campaign to raise money for King's opponent in the next election: Michael Jackson Fans Against King. They must not be from New York, however, or else they'd realize that Democrats there don't oppose King's election campaigns by fielding a candidate. But if that's what it takes to begin the effort to unseat a NY incumbent . . .

...but he was never not proven not-guilty of not being a pedophile...so maybe King had a point. It may not be obvious because he left it with the white robe in his closet, but...

So Michael Jackson is getting what amounts to a "state funeral" in California, and Rep. Peter King, from New York, is upset about it? Bah!

"State funerals" are meant to be reserved for heads of state, i.e. Presidents, Kings, and the like. Not pop stars who've fallen from grace and turned into tabloid bait the last 25 years.

To answer Sammy's rhetorical question, I have little doubt that some misguided idiot will actually take it under advisement to be a pseudo-martyr. For the wrong cause and for all the wrong reasons.
