Your bitter irony for the weekend…

…and I do mean bitter…the Rev. Al Sharpton ranting, “This is our day! This is OUR day! And we’re NOT gonna let them take that away from us!” when, if Martin Luther King Jr. were still alive, he would have wanted it to be everyone’s day, no matter his or her race, color or creed. Would that someone would have asked Sharpton the question Bill Whittle was asking five years ago:

“Have you not met and talked and laughed with people who were funny, decent, upright, honest and honorable of every shade so that the very idea of racial politics should just seem like a desperate and divisive and just plain evil tactic to hold power?”
