Sometimes I think that sanity is just a passing fad

You know, the first thing I thought when reading this was that it's a pity Saturday Night Live is still on summer hiatus. They did a great job with Harry Belafonte's bizarre ramblings last time they made the news. Atlanta ( - Celebrity activist Harry Belafonte referred to prominent African-American officials in the Bush administration as "black tyrants" at a weekend march, and he also compared the administration to Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany. [...] "[If] a black is a tyrant, he is first and foremost a tyrant, then he incidentally is black. Bush is a tyrant and if he gathers around him black tyrants, they all have to be treated as they are being treated," he added. When asked specifically who was a "black tyrant" in the Bush administration, Belafonte responded to this reporter, "You." When this reporter noted that he was a Caucasian and attempted to ask another question, Belafonte abruptly ended the interview by saying, "That's it." To quote Darrell Hammond-as-Chris Matthews: Good God, I can't even figure out who that's offensive to. (Via NealeNews.)
