"I want our democracy to be as good as Christina imagined it," President Obama declared in Tucson, Ariz., in January. He was referring to Christina Green, the 9-year-old girl whom Jared Loughner allegedly murdered five days earlier, and making a plea for civility and decency in politics.
"Obama will be speaking Wednesday for the first time as commander in chief at the annual convention of the National Action Network and standing with its founder, the Rev. Al Sharpton--whom the President largely ignored before his 2008 election," reports New York's Daily News.
In The Wall Street Journal a decade ago, Fred Siegel described the man with whom the president of the United States is now palling around:
Mr. Sharpton is best-known for the Tawana Brawley hoax, in which he insisted that a 15-year-old black girl had been abducted and raped by a band of white men practicing Irish Republican Army rituals. In fact she had made up the story to protect herself from her violent stepfather.
But at Freddy's [Fashion Mart, a Harlem store], Mr. Sharpton was even more malevolent. He turned a landlord-tenant dispute between the Jewish owner of Freddy's and a black subtenant into a theater of hatred. Picketers from Mr. Sharpton's National Action Network, sometimes joined by "the Rev." himself, marched daily outside the store, screaming about "bloodsucking Jews" and "Jew bastards" and threatening to burn the building down.

Let her rest in peace.
Mary Jo Kopechne had expectations, too.
There is no level below which Libs cannot stoop.
Obama to speech writer, ‘I want that dead girl in my speech, dammit! I don’t care how you do it, just get it done!’
I BOYCOTT FOX when that SHYSTER is on!!!
