Jesse Jackson to ESPN: Come to D.C.

Activist Jesse Jackson has found a new cause: bringing ESPN’s 50 States in 50 Days tour to Washington, D.C.

The activist and former presidential candidate says it’s insulting that the cable network left D.C. out when it came up with its plans. Jackson says he’ll go to the network’s Connecticut headquarters if they don’t change their tune. — Associated Press

Uh, Jesse, there’s nothing in D.C. that would quite fit in this tour. ESPN is covering events such as the Freestyle Frisbee Championships in Seattle, Wash., today, and the World Championship Cardboard Boat Races in Heber Springs, Ark., tomorrow.

ESPN has already toured 13 of 50 states and also has posted a blog online.

Congratulations, Rev. Jackson, you’re today’s Stupid Person of the Day.
