I know. Fox News’ Megyn Kelly has the intellectual heft of a pebble, but I still enjoyed Jesse Jackson’s responses to her.
I have to paraphrase the interview, because transcribing Kelly might give me thoughts of suicide:
Jackson: The people will escalate the protests.
Kelly: What do you mean “escalate?” Can we expect more child-killing mayhem from the violent, foaming-at-the-mouth, serial killer teachers?
Jackson: Escalate means more protests, dear.
Kelly: Why can’t these criminal, beggar, pig teachers stop slobbing up the capitol and just vote like normal people. Why can’t they just forget they have First Amendment rights and take their fucking lumps until election time as opposed to what they are doing as a bunch of cheesy, violent thugs making murderous threats on poor helpless and innocent Republican representatives.
Jackson: The demonstrators are peaceful. They’re fighting for their livelihoods like the rest of the middle class.
Then Kelly moves on to a false equivalency about the Health Care Reform law, and Jackson graciously shames her by pointing out that people in America were dying because of the previous system.
This post brought to you by me annoying the fuck out of Reverend Jesse Jackson:
