Quote of the Day - Grey Ghost Edition

"Hate to admit it, but Jesse's on point here and Soledad's an idiot for pretending not to know what context he made his statement in. CNN does have a problem when it comes to diversity within its news staff and while they're not as indelibly white as say MSNBC, passing off light-skinned [N]egroes to fill in your quota form just doesn't fly in the black community"

This is in response to Soledad O'Brien's new book in which she chronicles a discussion with Jesse Jackson in which he told her that she didn't count as a black host.  I find this really odd since Clarence Thomas is not considered black enough too, at least according to Eleanor Norton Holmes.  Who exactly is black enough for the dems?

One is as Black as one's political persuasion. You may recall that President Clinton was widely lauded as "The First Black President".

I was unaware that O'Brien was of mixed race (not that I particularly care). Either way, she is a bit Left of Center, but that didn't seem to matter to Jesse.
