MORT’s Meanderings

Belafonte: a spoiled fruit

Harry Belafonte’s latest tirade against sanity took the form of hurling invectives at Republican presidential candidate, Herman Cain. The once handsome but now, over-the-hill Caribbean crooner, availed himself of the opportunity to wax ineloquent on a recent Joy Behar show. I’m guessing that the booking agency for The View presumed that Banana Belafonte was long gone from the scene and so, has busied itself negotiating for another appearance with Bill O’Reilly.

And - - I’m guessing again, that’s how hoary Harry wound up at the Behar bordello. But au contraire, Harry is still alive and kicking – at least sufficiently alive to call Candidate Cain, a ‘bad apple’. Now, why would he do that? Just the latest in a unbroken litany of nasty remarks about true Americans, interspersed with an even longer litany of glowing descriptions and laudatory commentary about the likes of his heroes and pals, Che, Castro, Chavez and any number of Communists, Socialists and Marxist strong-men.

His ‘bad apple’ comment reminds me of a personal experience. Many of you reading this might have had a similar experience. Did you ever put an absolutely perfect apple into the refrigerator to cool, intending to enjoy it later? And then, forgot about it until weeks afterward when you looked behind the ketchup and saw a lump of shriveled brown mess?

That’s old Harry Belafonte - - an antique piece of fruit that is no longer vibrant, much less, attractive. He is as useless and inconsequential as Jane Fonda, Mel Gibson, Susan Sarandan, Barbra Streisand and the rest of that screw-loose ilk.

‘Bad apple’, indeed. Look into the mirror, Harry - - and get ready - - it ain’t pretty.
