Julian Bond sold out to Billary -- say it ain't so!

Hat tip to Jack & Jill and Blackline. reports:

"Julian Bond, chairman of the NAACP, has written a letter to Howard Dean to express 'great concern at the prospect that million of voters in Michigan and Florida could ultimately have their votes completely discounted.'"

Read the entire letter here

What's also troubling is that Bond's letter to Dean was NOT approved by the NAACP Board of Directors and was sent without being put before the Board, according to radio host and CNN analyst Roland Martin.

Rev. Al Sharpton shot back on MSNBC and the Tom Joyner Morning Show, calling Bond's letter "PoliTRICKS." He also wrote a letter to Howard Dean saying:

"I firmly believe that changing the rules now, and seating delegates from Florida and Michigan at this point would not only violate the Democratic party's rules of fairness, but also would be a grave injustice...To raise that claim now smacks of politics in its form most raw and undercuts the moral authority behind such an argument."

To see Sharpton's response on MSNBC go here.

This is important. The DNC stripped the Michigan and Florida Democratic parties of its delegates as punishment for moving up their primaries earlier than the national party wanted.

With no one campaigning, Billary cruised to victory.

I have the utmost respect for Julian Bond. He's been bold during the darkest days of the Bush administration. However, he knew this about Michigan and Florida months ago. For whatever reason, he's coming out to join the ranks of other Negro Spiritual leaders that bow to the altar of Billary (John Lewis, Charlie Rangel, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Maya Angelou, Andrew Young, etc.).
