Thanks to MOL ‘Anon2’ we have an update from Byron York. Turns out the Reverend Farrakhan really is just a “guy in the neighborhood” after all! After some uncomfortable hours, a quick call from one of our homies in Motown got the Rev’s Fruits to stand down. Crisis averted, and Big Guy never even had to hear about it let alone try to deal with it. And that’s a good thing, since he’s had a lot of other “stuff” on his plate lately.
Your pooler got a call at about 10:15 local time from a pool report reader who identified himself as the Rev. Gary Hunter, a Baptist minister in Motown who writes and blogs for the Detroit Times. He said he had called Minister Farrakhan and his son and asked them to have the Fruit stand down.
“I told him you were good people,” Rev. Hunter said. “He said he didn’t know you all were just waiting for the president.”
Oh dear! It seems our friendly little neighborhood BBQ last night at, reportedly, the house of an “old friend” was inadvertently held at a home owned by none-other than race baiter, Jew-hater Louis Farrakhan. And even though he’s just “a guy in the neighborhood,” the suddenly not-so-supportive press is probably going to try to make a big deal out of it anyway. At least we still have AP on our side. But it seems like almost everyone else is bailing on us: our “conservative” cheerleader, Peggy Noonan – even the Wapo!
I’m going to have to tell you, it’s really been a pretty crappy weekend so far:
The Sestak Bribery scandal refuses to go away
The Giant Oil Leak refuses to go away
The criticism refuses to go away
And the “thin-skinned” Won refuses to go away
Maybe we should have just stayed in Washington and gone to the tomb of the unknown soldier after all.
