Jackson took his stand for Barack Obama, as you can understand from above, in the wrong direction. I am not saying that Jackson should have been thanking John for fighting the war he was able to avoid. I am saying: Jackson, come on, man. You are a poetic and musical visionary, timeless in some of your songs. You like liberty, don’t you? We all love your music. The politics/running into Federal Court to sue McCain for “UNSPECIFIED DAMAGES [TO JACKSON’S REPUTATION] is being kinda delusional – more like Michael “Dubai” Jackson than Andrew “Stonewall Jackson, MTV’s first host, J.J. Jackson or the sports-coool dude guru, Mr. Phil Jackson.
