That speech he gave at the DNC was a barnburner. He deserves every penny.

Sharpton may act like a nut sometimes, but he was smart enough to know there wasn’t much point in campaigning for Kerry if you weren’t going to get paid. Plus, Sharpton can do a lot more with those thousands of dollars than can.

We also will frown upon those who suggest that we ban other individuals for voicing unpopular opinions, should those opinions be voiced in a civil and respectful manner.
