Authors, social activists and ministers Michael Eric Dyson and his wife Marcia Dyson quite famously are having a little “marital” spat. It seems Hubby Dyson is for Obama. Wifey Dyson is for Clinton. What to do, what to do?
I know! We’ll keep use this as a gimmick to get us on MSNBC and CNN all the time arguing with one another, hence getting us more attention, hence selling us more books!
The Dysons have been on MSNBC’s Hardball several times and were on CNN both yesterday and today. I’ll give the power couple the benefit of a doubt that maybe they really do disagree on who should be the Democratic nominee. Why not? A lot of people are split. But the cynic in me smells manufactured foolishness contrived by two very intelligent, media savvy people.
I mean, they’re too delicious to resist. A prominent black married couple, both intelligent, both opinionated and articulate arguing over the first black man/white woman show down in the Democratic presidential nomination.
I’m just saying I think this is a little contrived. Just a smidge. So please, Dysons. Shut the hell up. I don’t want to hear you fake fight on the TV. And if you’re not faking. I don’t want to hear your real fight on TV. I know you’re just doing it to pimp your profiles.
