Jesse Jackson Goes Nuts: Funny or Really Bad?

jacknutsg.pngSo the other day when we first heard Jesse Jackson‘s comments our initial reaction was one of shock, and some outrage, though considering the source was Fox less than it otherwise might have been. We thought: that’s it, change is good, etc., but let’s not kid ourselves racism in America hasn’t gone anywhere. The gloves are about to come off!

Or maybe not, because in the subsequent days (this has to be one of the funniest things we’ve watched lately), the entire thing has become, dare we say it, funny. Much like Fox‘s “terrorist fist-jab” and “Obama baby mama” remarks there are mornings when we have to do a double-check to make sure we’re not reading Onion. Anyway, we’re wondering if we’re alone on this — what say you FBNY readers what kind of “nuts” was it? Poll after the jump.


Are We Nuts For Thinking This is Funny?
