  • Don King for George Bush

    Boxing Promoter Don King Stumps for Bush

    Wed Jun 2, 6:16 PM ET

    By MICHAEL RUBINKAM, Associated Press Writer

    PHILADELPHIA - Don King, the wild-haired boxing promoter, is touring the country with Republican National Committee chairman Ed Gillespie to tout President Bush's re-election.

    "Only in America," as King often says and he did at a stop in Philadelphia Wednesday.

    "People understand that George Walker Bush is the man with the plan to make America better," King, sporting an American flag tie and plenty of diamond-encrusted jewelry, told a group of black business leaders at a downtown jazz club. "Sometimes, just sometimes, it ain't too bad to be in the Bushes."

    The latter line is the flip side of Jesse Jackson's warning at past Democratic conventions for Americans to "stay out of the Bushes."

    King's rap sheet makes him an odd choice for Bush front man. He was convicted in the 1967 beating death of a man who owed him money and spent nearly four years in prison. In 1954, he killed a man who was robbing a numbers house he operated in Cleveland, but it was ruled self-defense.

    Yeah...Mike Tyson would make a great spokesman for the Bush Campaign. In his squeeky voice he could start off each of his speeches in that old Roman fashion..."Friends, Americans, Countrymen, lend me your ear...or I'll bite the damned thing off!"

    Another fine example of "compassionate conservatism"...:P
    I have no problem at all with being proved wrong. Especially when being proved wrong leaves the world a better place, than being proved right...

        I guess I've seen everything now... someone pinch me because this must be Bizarroland. Someone in the upper echelons of the GOP must know something that I don't.

        He's about as flamboyant a figure as anyone could ask for. My question is what is his position on why he went against the Democratic Party line and what's in it for him?

          He could help Bush's campaign better if he shuts his mouth, sell his 'diamond-encrusted jewelry' and donate the proceeds to charity.

          Then announce that GB2 inspired him do it.
