Sharpton at the convention, on the podium. Could happen, i guess.
tell you this, though; the man can muster a rent-a-mob, and I wouldn't be surprised if he rose to warlord during some urban civil war. Sort of a better-dressed version of Aideed.

Frankly, it's a dream come true. First, they're shoving Jessuh Jackson to the side, second, they're giving a mike to a hysterical fruitcake, and third, it's going to be the image the public takes away from the convention, because the Revrund Al can sling a truckload of bovine product better than Kerry.
I'm looking for a downside here...
Electoral politics of 2004 place a higher value on apologies for slights and wrongdoings, both real and imagined, than on cogent policy initiatives.
No men need vote.

(If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would ever get done.)
Sharpton aside, I've been pondering the the very real possibilities of bizarre spectacle at Dem. convention..remember '68 and '72? Just watching those circuses won Nixon many votes.
With the present psychotic state of the dems I have high hopes, though fewer people watch now.

("You have confused the true with the real.")
The entire Democratic party is run my gangs using similar methods as Sharpton - just toned down so as to not be obvious.
