THE THREE STOOGES: Such is the state of black leadership today that…

1. Louis Farrakhan thinks “our president is a threat to world peace” (which means, evidently, that he thinks Saddam Hussein isn’t.)


2. Meanwhile, Harry Belafonte (whom Matt Drudge zings as being “best known for the international hit ‘Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)'” thinks that Colin Powell, Bush’s Secretary of State, is a plantation slave.

3. And of course, Al Sharpton thinks communist Cuba is Mayberry, RFD revisited:

“To my surprise, the best fried chicken I have ever ate in my life (outside of my mama’s) was in Havana. Cuba is very clean, and the only crime you could openly see is prostitution. You don’t see a lot of dirt and crime. People even leave their doors unlocked there. It reminded me of the deep, deep South in the 1950s, where everyone greeted each other as they walked by. Even the cars are from the 1950s. …It was like stepping into Mayberry with Andy Griffith. I expected Aunt Bea and Opie to come running out any minute.

Gee, I guess I missed Barney Fife’s torture chambers. Maybe they were cut out when the show went into syndication.
