Michael Jackson was an important piece of American culture and in the ‘Pantheon” of Influential Entertainers (Elvis, The Beatles…) but the fawning over him that everybody on the planet is doing over him is ridiculous.

I mean, anytime Rev. Al Sharpton spends more time on TV than the Shamwow guy you know it’s nuts.

I have a hard time caring about the death of Michael Jackson and having it shoved into my face like there’s nothing else going on in the world doesn’t help. I respect the impact Michael Jackson had on Pop Music, I respect that he is responsible for some of the most Iconic moments in Pop Music history. But it still doesn’t change the fact that he was a two time kid toucher.

And Joe Jackson, who’s on TV right now more than commercials, is proving himself to be one of the 5 most worthless humans on the earth.

Of course, if Elvis or John Lennon had died in the age of the 24 hour news cycle and Twitter it’d be a couple thousand times worse than the Jackson coverage.
