Good ol' Michael the Black Man -- he should fit right in with the apocalyptic feel of this morning's news.
The former cult member, who once was charged with cutting somebody's head off and led a group interrupting an Obama speech with signs bearing such slogans as "Obama is endorsed by KKK", bought an insane political ad in the Sun-Sentinel over the weekend.
The paper was going to put a disclaimer, we're guessing, but then they thought... Eh, nobody reads this shit anyway.
The ad, on page 9B of the Saturday edition as first noticed by our colleague in Broward-Palm Beach, Bob Norman, declared that "Good black people support good candidates" like Allen West and Marco Rubio. It featured a photo of Michael with West-- which is certainly not the first time our new Congressman has palled it up with slightly terrifying wierdos.
The entertainment never stops with Michael the Black Man-- real name(s) Maurice Woodside AKA Maurice Symonette-- who labels Oprah the devil and called me a "left-wing enthusiast and casual racist." He was involved in a North Miami shootout that he swore was an assassination attempt orchestrated by Obama. And this summer, his son, Jeremiah Parham, unloaded an AK-47 on some swimmers coming too close to Dad's 65-foot yacht.
