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."Well that says a lot, doesn't it. Barack Obama says "behave responsibly," and Al Sharpton says, "quit showing off for the white folks".
[regarding the Sean Bell case]
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.
