Attention whore

Sweet Baby Jesus -- will this man just go away... From Chicago's NBC affiliate:
Rev. Jesse Jackson Attends Hugo Chavez Funeral
Of all the people attending Hugo Chavez's funeral Friday in Caracas, Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. is among them.

The father of disgraced former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. confirmed his attendance on Twitter. He reportedly arrived Thursday night in Venezuela and will lead a delegation organized by his Rainbow/PUSH Coalition.

Rev. Jackson told Fox News he knew the Venezuelan president "in a direct and personal way" and says he is "deeply saddened by his passing." Chavez presented Jackson with the Liberator's Award in 2005.
Chavez was a confirmed enemy of the United States. When we see all of these people fawning over his cold corpse, it only serves as a reminder of who we should patronize and who we should shun. Jackson has lost any credibility that he had. Some fun comments at the site -- here is just one of them:
Don't be deceived. Reverend Jackson is in Venezuela on the hunt for new patrons to subsidize his lifestyle who will happily stuff ducats in his pocket just to irritate the U.S. Watch and see if the low-rent grifter doesn't try to put the touch on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for a "contribution" in the spirit of solidarity. Surprised that Louie is not joining him on this begging mission given that Louie's ace benefactor, Muammar Gaddafi, left the planet.
Spot on... Anyone that sees this person as a "leader" is in a serious delusional state. Posted by DaveH at March 9, 2013 12:05 PM
