I can't watch it. Her voice is like Cthulu's nails on the biggest, screechiest chalkboard ever.

I totally forgot she existed.

And I sort of wish I'd never been reminded.

She records CDs of ukelele music for kids. I think all parents should buy them...... to be used for the most severe punishments.

Are you saying that if I punish my children with Victoria Jackson, Bono's going to come and scold me?

That's a punishment worse than Victoria Jackson.

Maybe I exaggerated. It's more of a lateral move.

Seriously, thirty seconds in and you knew this preacher didn't know what the hell he was talking about, you definately could tell he hadn't read his book...

Diamond, does it bring you pleasure to find a black preacher that doesn't like Obama? Was that the point?

Well, when a preacher, a supposed servant of God, engages in a slur of racial epithets, and I quote:

Quote:
You nigger, you! You nigger you!! you NIGGER YOU!!! You perveted low white trash!! You perveted scum of the Earth!! Glue sniftin', trenchcoat mafia white trash!!!!
I tend to discount the rest of his opinions as the rantings of a madman, and it also seems to indicate that he has some issues with Obama's mixed ethnicity. Nevermind that these are words spoken in a supposed house of the Lord, by someone who is supposed to be an example to his community of how to be a Christian. Lovely.

Add on top of that the fact that he claims to speak for Obama's grandmother when he clearly hasn't met her and doesn't know her or her relationship with Obama, yeah. I don't give this guy too much credit.

Quote:
"I've watched something over this last year and a half as I've watched this man go from one level of international and national prominence to another. Not once has his grandmother ever come to any of his events.

...

You know why? Let me tell you, let me tell you why. Because she knows that he is hate filled. She knows that he should not be elected as President. She knows him, she knows his heart. She knows the kind of man that I have described him to be. She knows that he is a liar par excellence, that he is full of hate and that he should not be trusted and he should not lead America. She knows that and that's why she's not there in support."
What an utterly awful, undignified and hateful thing to say about someone you don't even know.

It's hate speech, pure and simple.

I hope we know... Not counting on it, but it'd be nice to wake up November 5th with a pretty clear idea of how the next four years are going to go...

Well the preacher is an African American, it's racist to judge his beliefs without some in depth consideration, his peppery language is understandable if not justifiable because his people have been abused by the system and after that horrid Reverend Wright business we ought to be more understanding of where colourful religious leaders are coming from, I for one hope we can all try and understand where he is coming from, not question the judgement of those who attend his sermons and refrain from attaching racist labels like hate speech to his preachings, it would be only fair.
