Sharpton Caller Links Sarah Palin, Michael Jackson


Sharpton Willing To Entertain Palin - Jackson Plot Scenario

Did Sarah Palin step
down as governor of Alaska because she was about to be exposed as having "done something" to Michael Jackson?

At a time when many on the left are using Jackson's death for political purposes, especially to smear conservatives (or anyone suggesting Jacko was not a saint), this one deserves to win first prize for sheer creativity. At the time of his passing, your Radio Equalizer warned of this inevitable trend.

While that kind of kooky theory might sound preposterously funny to the mentally well-adjusted among us, a caller to Al Sharpton's radio show yesterday appeared absolutely serious in suggesting a Palin-led plot to get Michael Jackson.

It's probably the wackiest Sharpton moment since The Reverend called Somali pirates a "voluntary coast guard".

Hey, there are always nutty callers out there, right? And occasionally, they sneak past call-screeners and reach the airwaves.

What's different here, however, is Sharpton's willingness to entertain the possibility, rather than dismiss it outright.

Sure, why not? No theory is too bizarre for the king of conspiracies.

Here's the transcript and clip:

FEMALE CALLER (31:50): He (Michael Jackson) is truly the soundtrack of my life. I also have a theory about Sarah Palin as well and I’m going to put it out there on radio, hopefully someone can investigate.

But, I think maybe she did something to Michael Jackson. Maybe there’s a scandal there. Maybe she’s stepping down because something’s about to come out. I don’t know, but I’m gonna just put it out there on your show so we’ll see.

SHARPTON: All right, thank you for your call, Ashley. That’s interesting. I’ll put it out, we’ll see. I don’t know.

Is it really interesting, Al, or certifiably nutty? Sharpton has cooked up so many conspiracies over the years that it's no wonder his listeners feel comfortable sharing them on his program.

  • Pinnie:

    This is the kind of 'critical thinking' these Acorn types are capable of. Proof that public schools are a complete and utter failure. These are 'people' who NEED big government programs to get from points a to b.

    Without government to tell them what to do/think they couldn't wipe their own butts.

    Problem is: the government is usually WRONG.

  • If this was a white talk show host, they would be crucified by the black community! So why then should we the white's in this country not stand up and demand the resignation of this black revolutionist? I think this jerk was fathered by George Jefferson, but then again good old George did it for fun and entertainment, not to stir the crap! Crawl under a rock where you belong Al!

  • Who's Fauced?

    Who's Limbauh?

    Who's Malony?

    At least he got "dumber" right!

  • I know it was Palen because I intorduced her to the allians who used their space gun to make him have a heart attack.

  • Yeah, "interesting" all right -- interesting that Sharpton is such an idiot that he didn't immediately scoff

  • Are you serious? Are there people out there who totally believe this crap? Michael was a great musician. He was talented. But he was not a good human being. A good person would not have put himself in the situations he was in. The memorial service was way over the top. I wonder if the people who attended would have spent days waiting to see a family members service? America needs to start worshiping God more than they do celebrities.

  • These kooks on the left are happy Al’s a Senator. Let’s get the rest of Saturday night live cast elected the hell with the country. Let’s elect comedians to run the country America is turning in to a laughing stock anyway. All that matters is the left gets their fools in office, not elected just get them in. Now let’s spend some money, health care for ever one, carbon tax hell another stimulus package how big we can make this one, 9.5% unemployment extend unemployment payments for ever that will buy some votes.
    GOP needs to stop fighting the left and start spending before all the votes are bought. Tax the rich till there is only to classes left poor and government class. This is what America deserves.

  • Racism (regular and reverse) still exists, unfortunately. But most blacks I know recognize that we've come a long way in the last 4 decades. Rev. Al is not one of them.

    Sharpton is still programmed for 1962, and his income depends on his ability to convince others that it's still 1962.

  • Palin Whacked Jacko Conspiracy Theory Goes Unchallenged on Al Sharpton's Radio Show

    By Anonymous StewartIII, at 08 July, 2009 20:03  

  • Finally, We May Know Why Palin Resigned

    Al Sharpton still entertaining kooky ideas

    This serves as a befitting night-cap to today’s media circus portrayal of Jackson’s funeral (via The Radio Equalizer: Brian Maloney)...

  • "At the time of his passing, your Radio Equalizer warned of this inevitable trend"

    -Brian, so sorry to hear about your passing, I'll miss the laughs. What? It was just a dangling participle? Whew.

    My guess is that Sharpton can't afford to alienate even one listener, however wacky the listener may be. Reverend Al himself is too smart to believe much of the crap he spews and his show gives voice to, but alas the Sharpton brand still has some value. It will be a better world when the rhetoric of the Sharptons (and Limbaughs) of the world are no longer given credence because we have a better educated and more humane populace.

  • WTF??? Wait... I know... She must have shot him from a helicopter with a "tranqilizer" dart and mis-judged the dosage, not realizing he was down to a mere hundred pounds of bleached-out, crotch-grabbing, child-molesting perversion when he met his untimely demise. Better watch out, "Reverend" Al, she got Jacko... she could get you, too! She's a crack shot (don't tell Marion Barry, he'd get the wrong idea...) But it would take a five times greater dose for your stupid fat ass.

  • Hey, maybe should call Sharpton and offer up this conspiracy theory: "I heard from some drunk on the street that President Obama's daughters are actually his sons, and that he and Michelle have been dressing them up in women's clothing all this time."

    Let's see if he says "that's interesting", or if he says something else.
