Look who the President has in his corner.

I shamelessly knicked this off of Drudge this morning; hopefully, the big guy won't mind. Thought it was pretty cool though.

BOXING PROMOTER DON KING: 'BUSH IS A REVOLUTIONARY'

CNN, THE SITUATION ROOM 4:00 PM EST

WOLF BLITZER, HOST: Don king is known worldwide as a big-time boxing promoter. But has also taken some new fights on recently...

You love George Bush?

DON KING; I love George Walker Bush because I think he's a revolutionary. He's a president that comes in with conclusiveness. What they're doing in tomorrow in Iraq is a demonstration of that for the vote for democracy. The fundamental process of democracy is freedom of speech, law and order, being able to have freedom, working with people and working and governing yourselves. George Bush is that. He included in...

BLITZER: Do you have any regrets supporting him? Take a look at that picture when you and I were there at the diner last year. Do you have any regrets supporting him as enthusiastically as you did?

KING: No, I don't. In fact, I want to support him more now because it seems like everybody is punching him. You know what I mean? But he's fighting back, and he's throwing great combinations. And I think he's the guy that is really a revolutionary president.

I think he's a president that cares about the people he represents, but doesn't compromise himself to the extent that he acquiesce and accommodate. He goes out there and says like it is, and tries to make things better. Inclusiveness, education, is fighting for that.

These are the things that many guys that don't fight for -- George Walker Bush is a tremendous advocate to America, a great president for the great American people, and he's decisive. He's doesn't equivocate.


Don King, being a well-known boxing promoter, has backed more than his fair share of boxers. Since King's career as a promoter spans three decades and includes more than 500 world-championship fights, I feel he knows who to back and who to dismiss.

And Mr. King backs President Bush. Now there's a smart man.

Let's see Harry Belafonte call Don King a "House slave" as he did Condi Rice and Colin Powell..

Something tells me if he did Don would have one of his boys educate Belafonte.

P.S. Seems your BBC picked up my comment on the Bush speech:
