republican congressman calls jacko pervert!

i had my hands full the entire weekend. saturday, i was at work most of the day and went to my friend sarah's house and had barbeque while waiting for my other set of friends to come back from santa barbara. they arrived at quarter to 9 and i didn't get to meet with them anymore. i watched the local fireworks display in cerritos while they went to the los angeles olympic memorial stadium where they spent a good hour watching the fireworks display billed as the biggest in california. my friends nearly injured their necks after they had to crane for seemingly an eternity. a couple of my friends vowed not to watch any fireworks show in the next ten years! hahaha.

it didn't help that they spent the previous twelve hours on the road. my friends drove to solvang for a little wine-tasting trip and took a side trip to california's latest tourist attraction never neverland. i think disneyland should be scared now. if this sprawling michael jackson estate north of santa barbara isn't the newest happiest place on earth then how do you explain the wide smiles that i see of people as their pictures are taken in front of the huge steel gate? lol.

michael jackson will be laid to rest tomorrow in an undisclosed location. many are saying that he would be interred at either of the glendale or the hollywood hills location of forest lawn, a nearly exclusive cemetery for the stars.

tomorrow, a public memorial will also be held at the staples center in downtown los angeles. hundreds of thousands of michael's fans are expected to flood the area.

but while the world seems so enamored of michael jackson, one person is not totally sold on the michael jackson hysteria as evidenced by the report from AP about this republican congressman from new york who called michael a low-life and a pervert. ouch.

here's the story:

Michael Jackson called "pervert" by New York congressman Peter King

NEW YORK (AP) - A New York congressman says in a YouTube video that Michael Jackson was a "pervert."

Rep. Peter King said society is "glorifying" a "low-life" while ignoring the efforts of teachers, police officers, firefighters, veterans and volunteers.

Jackson was acquitted of molesting a boy.

In the video, the congressman says the "day in and day out" coverage of Jackson's death is "too politically correct."

He conceded that Jackson "may have been a good singer" and "did some dancing."

King is among the possible Republican contenders for the seat held by Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.

Jackson family spokesman Ken Sunshine says the family is preparing for Jackson's funeral and will not dignify King's statement with a comment.
