Watching Jesse Jackson cry…
Embedded video from CNN Video
…makes me cry.
But Sarah Palin’s tears…
…only make me giggle.
It's okay. Jesse Jackson made me cry too. You know how long he'd been waiting for that day.
It makes me laugh watching Palin cry too.
Seeing the Reverend Jackson sobbing with joy last night was the only thing that brought tears to my own eyes (Fuck! It's happening again!). My reaction to Palin's tears was less of a giggle and more of a cackle, followed by a loud fart.
Jesse Jackson's tears show up as the Stranger Personals ad. That makes me giggle. :)
what will make me really cry is when the Republican party nominates Sarah Palin and her VP candidate Joe the Plumber for the ticket in 2012
remember when we had to worry about that stupid fucking lady?
Did anyone else notice the frosty hug between Palin and McCain at the end of his speech? It looked to me like they couldn't wait to get away from one another. Newsweek's blog is also reporting that she was pretty ticked off that Steve Schmidt wouldn't let her speak at the concession speech.
He's only crying cause he wishes he was up there. He's a total charlatan. Thank God the first black president is a real leader and not some second string, B-team chump like the "Reverend" Jackson!!
i don't want to watch sarah palin cry, i don't want to watch her do anything. i want her to leave and never come back to national politics.
So... how's this sound to you? Sen Palin!
really?? watching jesse jackson mug for the cameras last night was one of the most hilariously pathetic spectacles of the evening. why is he holding his pinky to his lip? i laughed at him AND sarah palin.
Did she really think she had a chance?
I would laugh if Jesse Jackson was shot in the face.
Jesse Jackson is a has-been. I watched him desperately squeezing those tears out. When a red camera laser would glow on his face he would turn toward the camera and put on his sad/happy face.
He doesn't like Obama. It's all about him.
So, the whole evening had me misty eyed, and I'm not too proud to admit that I found Palin's tearing up a touching moment.
I guess I feel some empathy for her at this point. Let's face it, she wasn't the best choice, and she is going to be scape-goated big time. And she's had to endure a lot of shit these last months. Ya ya, I know she brought a lot of it on herself, but I'm feeling for her.
Brad, you're right. I felt really sorry for her too, especially with that radio-show prank that was pulled on her. Don't get me wrong, I don't agree with her politics, but that whole interview with "Sarkozy" she was thinking "Someone's finally taking me seriously!" Only to realize she's still the national punchline.
Fuck Sarah Palin. I'm glad I got to see her tear up, for all the hate & bullshit she spewed out. She doesn't deserve my sympathy for losing the election and I would drink those mascara contaminated tears if I could.
Jesse Jackson, on the other hand, touched me. However twisted he may have become politically, he was part of the beginning of the civil rights movement. I'll overlook any playing up to the camera for now.
I'm tired of the bitchy, hateful comments. Enough. Now is when we show conservatives that we're for ALL Americans and not just our own selves and ideals. We won, there's no reason to gloat and act a fool.
Jesse Jackson has done more to further Civil Rights than any of you asshole commentors. You didn't do shit but complain on a fucking message board. Shut the fuck up.
I find it sad that it took losing the election to bring out the statesman in McCain.
His concession speech was very very well stated and put and he deserves the respect of all americans for the sacrifices he has made for our country and our freedom.
That being said, apparently Palin didn't leave when the McCains did and hung around with the press.
Hmmm...Nop, still want a bottle of Palin tears.
Hmmm...Nope, still want a bottle of Palin tears.
Jesse Jackson and I witnessed history last night. What a country!
You know why she's really crying though, right? McCain's political adviser vetoed her request to speak to the crowd after McCain's cessation speech. It'll be in a huge Newsweek article this coming week.
Ugh, the way she smiled when the crowd booed Obama. While John tried to calm the crowd and redirect them, she stood there soaking it (the crowd's vitriol) in. She's a heartless attention seeker.
Jesse Jackson is one of the people who should be for ALL Americans and not just his own race.
@18 get off me.
if you're tired of bitchy comments, carollani, i think you're at the wrong blog.
i watched the whole thing and did not see palin cry. she looked unhappy, esp. when the boos could be heard through the applause for her, but no tears did i see. is this like when all the boys on slog piled on hillary and accused her of crying, having an emotional breakdown, etc. when really it's just that her eyes got a little misty?
for the record, i despise both women.
Yeah, I saw him and thought, "good, I'm glad I'm not the only one going into the full-fledged Ugly Cry in public tonight."
Her eyes were definitely welling up during McCain's speech.
i for one look forward to our new Dark Sith Overlord, Emperor Palintine.
It's better for her to have been forced to tears by Obama than by Putin (or Medvedev or whoever is really in charge).
i wanted her to cry hard. i was hoping she would. i hope she went home and cried her stupid fucking head off. and i hope she goes back to alaska and we never hear from her again.
Hats off to Jesse Jackson.
I'll take a bottle of that Neoconservative Tears...I've been waiting 8 long years for that crisp sweet satisfying beverage.
