Here's the other thing the Rev. Jesse Jackson said on Fox News two weeks ago about Barack Obama: "He's talking down to black people ... telling n-----s how to behave," according to various Web sites.Why Jesse, why?
Fox News' Bill O'Reilly said a "weasel" at Fox leaked the full quote to an Internet site.

O'Reilly let out the first bit of the quote last week. As Jackson waited to appear on another Fox program, he whispered to a fellow guest that he was annoyed with Obama for statements Obama was making at African-American churches.
"I want to cut his nuts off," Jackson whispered, making a sharp motion with his right hand.
Jackson's alleged use of the n-word is ironic because Jackson has called on African Americans not to use it.
I conjured up a few angles to this. And surely some are saying what does this have to do with Obama. Is this a way to knock Obama down, because a major "civil rights leader" decided that he had a disagreement with Obama? Or perhaps these reports are a way of forcing Jesse Jackson into the background? That is someone has a vested interest in crowning Sen. Barack Obama as a new spokesman or indeed a new black leader.
There are so many ways to run with this. This may not be a big conspiracy, but we'll have to admit for certainly that Jesse Louis Jackson has done nothing but put his own foot in his own mouth.
