Was Michael Jackson a Republican?

Great story from Willie Brown:

I got into a cab Friday, and the driver asked, “Was Michael Jackson a Republican?”

“I don’t think so. Why?”

“He managed to knock both that two-timing South Carolina governor and that two-timing, Bible-thumping senator from Nevada off the front page. Republicans haven’t gotten that much help from a black man since Sammy Davis Jr. hugged Richard Nixon.”
