Re ‘Rodman Explodes . . .’


AJ, did you see that Jesse Jackson tweeted his support for Rodman? He said that ping-pong diplomacy “worked in China,” and basketball “seems to work in North Korea.” (That’s an amazing hedge-word from the Reverend, “seems.”)

Moral giants, all around us.

P.S. Jesse Jackson once went down to Cuba, to bask in the aura of Fidel Castro. He chanted, “Viva Castro! Viva Che Guevara!” WFB, debating Jackson on television, asked whether, in wishing long life to Castro, he was at the same time wishing short life to his political prisoners.
