wink Another Democratic Loss..oops..

http://www.cnn.com/2005/WORLD/meast/...ons/index.html

Perhaps the astute mind of a famous promoter articulates the message well:

BOXING PROMOTER DON KING: 'BUSH IS A REVOLUTIONARY'
Wed Dec 14 2005 19:23:37 ET

CNN, THE SITUATION ROOM 4:00 PM EST

WOLF BLITZER, HOST: Don king is known worldwide as a big-time boxing promoter. But has also taken some new fights on recently...

You love George Bush?

DON KING; I love George Walker Bush because I think he's a revolutionary. He's a president that comes in with conclusiveness. What they're doing in tomorrow in Iraq is a demonstration of that for the vote for democracy. The fundamental process of democracy is freedom of speech, law and order, being able to have freedom, working with people and working and governing yourselves. George Bush is that. He included in...

BLITZER: Do you have any regrets supporting him? Take a look at that picture when you and I were there at the diner last year. Do you have any regrets supporting him as enthusiastically as you did?

KING: No, I don't. In fact, I want to support him more now because it seems like everybody is punching him. You know what I mean? But he's fighting back, and he's throwing great combinations. And I think he's the guy that is really a revolutionary president.

I think he's a president that cares about the people he represents, but doesn't compromise himself to the extent that he acquiesce and accommodate. He goes out there and says like it is, and tries to make things better. Inclusiveness, education, is fighting for that.

These are the things that many guys that don't fight for -- George Walker Bush is a tremendous advocate to America, a great president for the great American people, and he's decisive. He's doesn't equivocate.

END

Don King is probably one of the recipients of those lovely tax cuts over the past few years. Of course he loves W.

Well, they both make up words that don't exist in the English language so I guess this is not a big surprise.



GWB: Hey there Don King. I have severely uhhhh....misunderestimated the height of your hair

DK: Don't worry, I still think you are a stupendiferous man George W. Bush!

Prior to entering the world of boxing, King was a numbers racketeer in Cleveland, Ohio. In 1954, King shot and killed a man attempting to rob one of his gambling houses; the death was ruled a "justifiable homicide," despite the fact that King had shot him in the back. In 1966, King was convicted of stomping to death an employee who owed him six hundred dollars. Although he then embarked on a campaign of hush money payments and witness intimidation, he was convicted of second degree murder and given a life sentence.

So we don't like Tookie


but, we like this convicted murderer.



Good job King did not do his crime in Texas under Gov. Bush

Deep-

You always carp on leaving people alone after they serve their sentences.

Why the inconsistency here?

Did King serve his sentence?


I don't think he deserves to see the light of day if that stuff is true.
