Village Voice: "Roger Stone, the longtime Republican dirty-tricks operative who led the mob that shut down the Miami-Dade County recount and helped make George W. Bush president in 2000, is financing, staffing, and orchestrating the presidential campaign of Reverend Al Sharpton."
The idea is that Sharpton will draw off black voters, who would almost certainly vote Democrat, with his quixotic campaign. Why would Sharpton do this? The man is a total whore for publicity.
Update: Ok, I don't understqand this at all but Rush Limbaugh (!?!?!) actually has something incisive to say about this -- maybe the Oxycontin is kicking in again.
"I know a number of you people watching all this and you're seeing the White House not respond to any of it and you're saying, "why aren't they?"
I asked myself yesterday, how many other campaigns have they infiltrated if they've infiltrated Al Sharpton's? How many other campaigns do they have covert operatives in that are setting things up like dominos to fall over?"
