Congressman, Peter King's tribute to the King of Pop
"For the last, I don't know how long now, this low-life, Michael Jackson -his name, his face, his picture, is all over the newspapers, television, radio -all we hear about is Michael Jackson. Let's cut out the psycho-babble. This guy was a pervert, was a child molester, he was a pedophile and giving this much coverage day in and day out, what's it say about our country? I just think we're too politically correct. Nobody wants to stand up and say, we don't need Michael Jackson. You know, he died, he had some talent, fine, there's people dying every day. There's men and women dying every day, say in Afghanistan. I think the media has disgraced themselves. I think that too many people in public life have made fools of themselves by talking about Michael Jackson like he's some kind of hero. There's nothing new about this guy. Maybe he's a good singer and some dancing. The bottom line is, would you let your child or grandchild be in the same room as Michael Jackson? What are we glorifying him for? So anyways, let's take some time out to look to the people that truly make this a great country. The men and women of the armed forces, police, firefighters, teachers who work in really rough neighborhoods, people who volunteer with dying cancer patients, people who work in aids clinics -they're the ones that we should be glorifying, not some pervert like Michael Jackson."
