Golden Penguin Not Enough: Al Sharpton Wants an Oscar
2014 Fousesquawk Jerk of the Year
"What are you wearing, Al?"
Al Sharpton is not content with just having won the Golden Penguin as the 2014 Fousesquawk Jerk of the Year. He now has set his sights on an Oscar.
Reverend Al has called an "emergency summit" meeting to address the fact that no black actors are nominated for an academy award in next week's masked ball in Hollywood.
I smell a transfer of $$$$ here for the National Action Network.
But by all means, Al, knock yourself out. I suggest you not only picket the Oscars; I suggest you lead your forces right through the door and barge into the ceremony itself. Take over the stage. Grab the microphone. Lecture the crowd for three hours about white privilege. And guess what: They'll take it. Neil Patrick Harris will stand up there with you and say, "You're right, Al."
Jennifer Lawrence will be swept off her feet.
Out in the audience some bubble-haired blond actress will wring her hands
Al will be invited to all the Apres le Oscar parties.
Back in Washington, Eric Holder will launch an investigation into Hollywood's racist practices. President Obama will weigh in.
Yes, by all means, Al. We need to see you walking down Hollywood Blvd. chanting,
"No Oscars-no peace!"
