Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg has lunch with Rev. Al Sharpton at Sylvia's today. I find this utterly absurd for a couple of reason. First, why do all pandering democrats feel compelled to dine with Al Sharpton? Isn't Hillary's seat going to be filled by appointment from the governor and not an election? So why does she need to sup with Sharpton? I use to tire of all of these self-appointed black leaders but it really doesn't matter. It seems black folks don't even realize they are being marginalized -- so have at it Rev. . Secondly, why does he always take these idiots who seek an audience with him to Sylvia's? Do they bring him a compulsory watermelon as a gift of appreciation too? Is the good Reverend's palate so indiscriminate that he can't eat any grubbage other that soul food? Don't get me wrong I'm all about baked macaroni and cheese, collards, and smothered chicken but Sharpton's photo opps at Sylvia's are bordering on the absurd. Way to perpetuate the chitlin' eatin' negro sterotype Rev. Sharpton!
