Al Sharpton as a moral arbiter?????

Don Imus is a pig who has been making fun of people -- especially those who are vulnerable -- for years and getting away with it. Politicians appeared on his show without a second thought.... Now they won't. [If he still has a show on which to appear.]

In contrast, the Rutgers women did themselves, their university, their coach and their families proud today at their press conferences [I only saw clips but were they ever impressive.] I would rather have a cup of coffee with them than with Imus any day.

Having said all that, I still shake my head in wonder at Al Sharpton parading as the moral arbiter of what's right and what's wrong.

Remember how he turned New York and much of the rest of the United States in knots with his false claims about Tawana Brawley?

Remember how he seriously messed up the life of a young prosecutor Steven A. Pagones?

Remember how he lost a libel case and refused to pay the damages?

Remember how he whipped up hatred of Freddy's jeans store [and the terrible shooting and fire that followed]?

Now he is making pronouncements of who can say what???? Give me a break.

There is something seriously wrong with this picture.
