Making lemonade…

One good thing about the Obama presidency:

I haven’t seen this guy ever since.

Jesse Jackson has been out of the spotlight since President Barack Obama took office

Jesse Jackson has been out of the spotlight since President Barack Obama was inaugurated in January

What’s the connection between Obama’s arrival (get it?) and Jackson’s absence from the public scene? It couldn’t just be a coincidence, could it? Has the nation simply managed to avoid racially inflammable incidents since January 20th?

Or could it be that Jackson’s raison d’etre has been eclipsed? That his shtick has lost its shine? Does he perhaps realize that race-baiting is at once more easily dismissed and imminently less fashionable now that the nation has elected a black president?

Post Script: Messiahs “arrive.”
