7181: Alien Affairs.
Unidentified Flying Offenses in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• A California immigrants rights group asked Target and a costume company to stop selling an “illegal alien” Halloween costume. The costume is comprised of an alien mask, an orange jumpsuit and a green card. A group official called the costume “distasteful, mean-spirited, and ignorant of social stigmas and current debate on immigration reform.” No word yet from E.T.
• Rev. Al Sharpton is threatening to sue Rush Limbaugh over a Wall Street Journal editorial that the conservative talk radio host published last week. Limbaugh wrote that Sharpton “played a leading role in the 1991 Crown Heights riot (he called neighborhood Jews ‘diamond merchants’) and 1995 Freddie’s Fashion Mart riot.” A statement from the Sharpton camp argued Limbaugh “has the right to criticize Rev. Sharpton, but he does not have the right to accuse him of criminal activity.” Wish both of these guys would exercise the right to remain silent.
