His point is that the wall-to-wall coverage of the plastic man is too much and it’s time to move on to something of importance. Jackson is dead. If he means that much to you, that you have to watch every tidbit on the guy, then you really need to get a life. He was a wretched little man. Yes, a great entertainer, but so what! He’s dead. Move on. He wasn’t a member of your family, or your friend, or your neighbor. And in reality, you wouldn’t want him in your neighborhood. King is right. “He was a pervert.” Why would you idolize that kind of man?
I love the story out of New York this weekend. U.S. Congressman Peter King came out and said what a lot of us are thinking: “Let’s knock out the psychobabble,” King said in the video taped outside an American Legion Hall on New York’s Long Island. “He was a pervert, a child molester; he was a pedophile. And to be giving this much coverage to him, day in and day out, what does it say about us as a country? I just think we’re too politically correct.”
