Obama wins South Carolina and other thoughts…

This particular democratic race is turning out to be something crazier than I imagined. I for one would never have thought it would shake out the way it has been thus far. Incase you didn’t know, Barack Obama beat Hillary Clinton and John Edwards to win the state of South Carolina.

What is surprising isn’t so much that he won, but that he won by such a large margin. Some interesting tidbits;

Obama garnered 80% of the African American vote in South Carolina and 50% amongst young people.

This continues a trend that has been established early thus far; Obama appeals to the youth. While the media, Hillary Clinton and John Edwards continue to see Obama as a capable black man, they are missing out on the main point. There is a rebellion, a revolution coming. The Youth are saying: hey we don’t like the way things have been to this point and we are going to make a change.

Obama understands that. This is why you’ll see him say “change”, “change”, “change” as many times as he can in every speech he makes. Clinton and Edwards should start to get it or they don’t stand a chance. Just a word of advice to the wise.

So if you hadn’t heard by now, Dana Jacobson was recently suspended by ESPN and just got reinstated.

Apparently Ms. Jacobson of ESPN’s “First Take”, went too far at a roast for Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg (of Mike and Mike fame) and said some things that were inappropriate about Notre Dame, Touchdown Jesus and Jesus himself.

I have searched around but I can’t seem to find any information on what she actually said. If anyone knows, please do share. Here is what I have to say though. It is a pity. I like Dana Jacobson. I thought we should have learned by now that alcohol and microphones do not mix well. Not at Karaoke bars and obviously not at celebrity roasts.

  1. Make NO mistake about: Obama is controlled by the same commercial forces as Bush, Clinton, McCain or fill-in-the-dots.

    It is a nice charade.

    Goven a choice, I’d pick figure head Obama—but i have NO illusions as he too will follow a blood for oil policy and let Wall Street rape the capiatl markets via hedge fund.

    btw: Romney had his MILLION via hedge fund stealing.

    Our system is corrupt. As are TV sports.

    We do not own this franchise.

    No democracy in the USA.

  2. Disney-ESPN only employs wife beaters, dopers, liars, drunks, cheats and philanderers.

    Dana Jacobson
    A Catholic advocacy group charges the sports TV network ESPN has failed to respond properly to a graphic rant by anchorwoman Dana Jacobson in which she “attacked Jesus Christ.”

    Jacobson, reportedly intoxicated, was speaking at a celebrity roast in Atlantic City, N.J., when she unleashed a profane tirade, saying, “F— Notre Dame,” “F— Touchdown Jesus” and finally “F— Jesus.”

    “Touchdown Jesus” is the popular moniker for a mural on Notre Dame’s library featuring Jesus raising his arms.

    Catholic League president Bill Donohue said he pressed ESPN on the issue and received an e-mail with an unsatisfactory statement by Jacobson.

    The statement said, in part, “My remarks about Notre Dame were foolish and insensitive. I respect all religions and did not mean anything derogatory by my poorly chosen words.”

    Donohue contended the response “fails on several counts.”

    “First, there is no evidence that ESPN is taking this matter seriously,” he said. “Are we to believe that her hate speech is of no consequence?”

    Donohue argued Jacobson’s comments were at a public event where she represented ESPN.

    Secondly, he pointed out, racist remarks by the late sports commentator Jimmy “The Greek” Snyder during a luncheon interview in 1988 resulted in his prompt firing by CBS, despite an apology.

    Donohue added, “It is also important to note that being drunk didn’t help Mel Gibson’s case when he made bigoted remarks about Jews.”

    Finally, the Catholic leader said, “By far the most offensive thing she said, ‘F— Jesus,’ isn’t even addressed!”

    “It is obvious, then, that neither Jacobson nor ESPN is dealing with this matter in a professional way,” Donohue declared. “To put this issue behind them, ESPN must deal with this issue quickly, publicly and fairly, something it has yet to do. After all, most Christians are yet unaware of this event, but once they learn of it, they are sure to demand accountability.”
