Sharpton just got called on his “mistress” comments.

If you didn’t hear, last week Sharpton said that the Democrats treated blacks like a mistress, not like a wife, and that it might be time for something to change.

He isn’t really answering the question, which is smart politics. Leave the threat unstated.

Or as one reader asked, “Al Sharpton is the voice of reason tonight. What does that tell you about the field?”
