    I'd deny owning a suit like that too.

    Incidentally, we liberals think of it as Hannity and Sock Puppet Punching Bag.

    Wonder who owns the suit? The Rev. cannot own anything of any value - too many judgements against him. Someone tried to collect on one of them by siezing some property. Not his watch. Not his suit. Last I knew, the FEC wanted some of that money back too.
    Rev. Al was deposed several years ago for a civil lawsuit (can't remember which one) and he was questioned on this very point. He told the lawyer that he does not "own" any suits, but "has access" to several. Important distinction.
    Hmmmmm.....Hertz rent-A-suit ? [​IMG]
    Evidently, his social action organization hires him and provides him with clothing. The entire thing is a legal (albeit unethical) way of shielding assets. Evidently, he can claim minimal income and virtual no assets/resources. This helps when your creditors are not smart enough to get second and third party guarantors. Chuck: I believe it is the technically the right-wing, Bush apologist and his ever-so-slightly more moderate yes-man. At least that is what I got from reading the Al Franken book.

    This suit doesn't sound nearly as bad as the downward-pointing-peak-lapeled suit that a distressing number of athletes and ex-athlete sports commentators have been wearing lately.

    In a Washington Post article recently, Al Sharpton said he gets some of his clothes from the "Woody Wilson Collection" in Beverly Hills, CA http://woodywilson.com/ That unusual lapel is on the home page (left side) Click on "clients" on the top header and you will see Al Sharpton's name and those of other clients [​IMG] The lapel in question above

    Speaking of weird lapels, Kenny Smith on last night's TNT NBA broadcast was wearing lapels that had the notch *below* the point of the lapel -- notched upwards into the bottom part of the triangle. To do a bad ascii rendition, it looked something like this: Code Sample / / < ^ \\

    Miller - yeah, I can think of some.

    I'd like a ruling from Manton though, I think he could do it better than I can.

    Stuart Scott on ESPN wears a no notch lapel suit from time to time.

    (Eric @ April 26 2005,05:32) It seems to be a black thing. Â
    Uh-oh. Â Paging Policy...
    Jesus, should I have said African American? I don't mean to insult or anything but certain cultures, including but not limited to black/african american have a style of their own. No racism intended, and I hope none was taken. I hope we can get past the PC bull, it is exhausting. Eric

    I liked Sharpton a lot better when he wore track suits and a perm. More like this: [​IMG]

    My bad, tough to catch sarcasm online, I think everyone touched on that topic at the DC dinner also, this just further illustrates that point. SCREW YOU RJMAN. Eric

    Oh sure... bring Jesus into it. See, now we have religious bigotry. Why not Moses? Mohammed? Buddha? Donald Trump (oh wait, he only thinks he's God) And you, RJMAN - admit your hatred for those of Asian descent who are any darker than fish-belly white. Admit it man, confess. Don't make me get my latin book out or start bitch slappin you with my strawman. OK, sorry, will take my meds now.

    As a man of the cloth, I'd expect more from this &quot;Reverand&quot; Sharpton.

    He should be working to feed the homeless in Harlem instead of all the tomcatting he does. You know he doesn't have the eye on the ball when he's spending that much time and effort on his clothes.

    Why not just stick to the classic black and white- the religious equivalent of the suit and tuxedo? It's perfect.
