Jessie Jackson made some stupid comments about Barack Obama that should be rejected. However, Jessie Jackson’s son, Congressman Jessie Jackson Jr., decided to publicly chime in and to throw his father under the bus when his father was already being pummelled by the media and the blogosphere. There was no need for him to pile on and embarrass his father publicly.
He threw his father under the bus in the same way Obama threw his grandmother under the bus in his speech in Philadelphia. He shouldn’t publicly attack his father when he made this outrageously stupid and cynical comment about Hillary Clinton after the New Hampshire primary.
