One of the more amusing displays in this whole circus sideshow has been watching the right suddenly embracing Jesse Jackson, a man they’ve savaged for years. NewsMax, one of the Worldnutdaily’s primary imitators, suddenly calls him “the man regarded by many as the Democratic Party’s conscience.” How did NewsMax refer to Jackson before this? Well there’s this story, headlined Jesse Jackson: Friend of Terrorists, Communist Stooge. And there’s this one, wherein he is referred to as “nothing more than a slimy shakedown artist.” The Worldnutdaily, not one to be outdone, has actually promoted a National Day of Repudiation of Jesse Jackson, put on by “the other Jesse”, Jesse Peterson. But suddenly Jesse Jackson is a fount of moral wisdom in their view. Quite funny.
