Read my comments again-- I am not dismissing what he said.  I am defending 
his right to say it, as much as Patrick Buchanan has a right to say Hitler 
was misunderstood, or other similarly inane things that polticians say.  I 
just feel the media would do well to worry about corporate censorship 
rather than landing on the dumb political quote du jour.

I think Jesse still thinks like a pro wrestler-- say something outrageous 
and then wait for the cameras to arrive.
