Just so we're clear on this

According to news reports today, several Community Organizers are protesting being the butt of GOP humor this week. Well, lemme say this about that.

I've been a pastor for 32 years. I've ministered in the inner city. I've met all kinds of workers in charities and secular non-profits. I've started up Scouting units in predominantly African-American schools and churches. I've followed politics since I was in the 2nd grade. And I couldn't tell you what a Community Organizer is, or what one actually does to earn a paycheck.
