Where's That Blink Tag?

Or maybe I should get a revolving red light, like Drudge. But I should have something to highlight this post, because it's probably the first, last, and only time I'll ever agree with Barack Obama:

During what a source described as a "heated" phone call yesterday, Sharpton told Obama he was disappointed with the Illinois senator's words on Friday, when Obama said "resorting to violence to express displeasure" was "completely unacceptable and counterproductive."
[regarding the Sean Bell case]
Well that says a lot, doesn't it. Barack Obama says "behave responsibly," and Al Sharpton says, "quit showing off for the white folks".

So score a point for Obama. He could have kept his mouth shut, but instead threw a little cold water on "Rev" Sharpton's hoped-for riots. Good for him.

By the way, I was trying to repair a blemish on Sharpton's image and may have inadvertently given him a bigger mouth, with some extra teeth, and possibly I might have turned some of them upside-down.
