    Well, Sharpton just delivered the ROFLMAO comment of the year:

    From the live blog (yes, the insanity of it all…a live-blog):
    11:30 a.m.: A low-key (for him, anyway) Al Sharpton gets an ovation with this line: “I want his three children to know: There was nothing strange about your daddy. It was strange what your daddy had to deal with, and he dealt with it.”
