What a mark

It's really hard to have empathy for a guy who wantonly proposes that America "just bomb the hell out of" Iran in an effort to protect Israel.

But this poor GOP delegate got set up, Richie Vento-style, during his brief stay in St. Paul. I guess you could say that he was looking for love - or something much less than that - in all the wrong places. And that's cool, because I think lots of us have been there before. Especially when you're young, single and alone on the road.

However, what I find amazing is that he was taken for "a $30,000 watch, a $20,000 ring, a necklace valued at $5,000, earrings priced at $4,000 and a Prada belt valued at $1,000," among other items, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

It's just validation of something I've been saying this for years: it's not just black folks who are into bling. We should really stop the frontin'.
