Something tells me Sweet Johnny Mac should ask his good friend Rudy Giuliani why Mason might not be the best surrogate on this issue:
September 28, 1989:
Rudolph W. Giuliani said yesterday that the comedian Jackie Mason would no longer have a role in his mayoral campaign, after a newspaper quoted Mr. Mason as making racially charged remarks about blacks and Jews.
''There is a sick Jewish problem of voting for a black man no matter how unfit he is for the job,'' Mr. Mason said. ''All you have to do is to be black and don't curse the Jews directly and the Jew will vote for a black in a second. Jews are sick with complexes.''
Was Michael Richards just not available?
In other news, Jackie Mason is still alive?!
