Rev. Jackson? It's a joke.

Leaving last night, I had the great fortune to come up on a media frenzy outside the Pepsi Center. We craned our neck to get a good look and it was our hometown reverend Jesse Jackson being interviewed presumably by CNN or some news cable outlet. Wrong. It was the Daily Show. And when I saw the correspondent and the Daily Show producers there? I had to roll tape. This will probably be on tonight and I apologize to Daily Show for showing before it airs, but man - this has the potential to be Blago/Terminator all over again. Advice: Rev. Jackson, pay attention to the jokes. They are there, just stop talking long enough to listen.
