If only our airwaves could achieve balance with small adjustments....

It's like trying to balance a wheel with nothing but 3 oz weights....

EXCLUSIVE: Tawana Brawley served with court order to pay man she accused of rape - NYPOST.com
Attorneys Alton H. Maddox and C. Vernon Mason joined Sharpton in support of Brawley. A grand jury was convened; after seven months of examining police and medical records, the jury found "overwhelming evidence" that Brawley had fabricated her story.[70] Sharpton, Maddox, and Mason had accused the Dutchess County prosecutor, Steven Pagones, of racism and of being one of the perpetrators of the alleged abduction and rape. The three were successfully sued for defamation, and were ordered to pay $345,000 in damages, with the jury finding Sharpton liable for making seven defamatory statements about Pagones, Maddox for two, and Mason for one.[71] Sharpton refused to pay his share of the damages; it was later paid by a number of black business leaders including Johnnie Cochran.[32]

Is defamation "criminal?" If being a defendant in a civil suit is the basis for being castigated, then the field is exponentially larger.

Libby, North, Liddy, Spitzer, Folley, Abramoff, Delay, Jackson Jr., Rostenkowski,
Rangel as a start. There are plenty more. DC produces them at an alarming rate.

Is that what you have? Hah!

I expected not to like him myself but I find his comments, while often abrasively presented, to be pretty interesting and often right on target.

Actually in that way he may be pretty similar to you Brian.

Ambivalent about Sharpton, but still waiting to hear why he's a criminal.

Never thought I would find a person to defend a man who hasn't got the slightest shred of integrity and falsely accused a prosecutor of rape.

If you believe his comments are "right on target", there is absolutely no hope for you. The man is an complete DB in every sense of the word.
