The Reverend Comes To RAW

Left and Right work together to host RAW…and reform schools.

September 18, 2009 – We learned last Monday that Cedric the Entertainer was set to host this upcoming Monday’s RAW, but now we know who’ll be hosting the show the following week. It’s none other than the Reverend Al Sharpton!

We’re used to certain odd-fellows showing up on RAW these days, but what could Al Sharpton possibly have to promote? Why, it’s "Achievement Gap" Tour – whic will feature Sharpton hitting the road with, of all people, Former House Secretary Newt Gingrich, and Education Secretary Arne Duncan. With stops in Philly, New Orleans, Baltimore and Atlanta, Sharpton and Gingrich will be raising awareness for the "achievement gap" currently facing public schools in the U.S. and highlighting the efforts to reform public education.

Could there even be a remote possibility of seeing Gingrich on RAW? I smell new Tag Team Champions.
