One Campaign in Two Sentences

I've had extremely questionable judgment for the past twenty years.

Would you give me four more?

Short, sweet and the truth about Hussein in two sentences, one of them really short.

News flash for Senator Barack Hussein Obama:

Twenty years of sitting and listening to that sort of sermon--nearly all the Sundays of your adult life--aren't wiped away by a letter of resignation.

If you think this is going to stop questions, Senator, not only do you have another think coming, you're as politically clueless as you appear to be; and that boggles the mind.

You and your buddies in the MoveOnMedia can proclaim that this is over and done with all you want, Senator. This ain't Chicago, and people aren't going to drop a subject just because you and your Kool-aid drinkers say it's out of bounds.

As I've said before, it's called the First Amendment, Barry; it applies to conservatives too, much to your discomfort, and you might as well get used to it.

The messiah(pbuh)is done stick a fork in him why do I know this? Well you see my mother who is staunch Democrat has always voted a straight Democrat ticket(I am a conservative libertarian) told me she would not vote for the messiah(pbuh) she will either not vote for a Presidential candidate or vote for MCcamnesty, now let me tell you we never ever talk politics for obvious reasons and she brought this up to me not the other way around, she was willing to vote for either the messiah(pbuh) or the hildabeast but no longer why? Because the pfleger speech and also she believes they are (they being the DNC and the messiahs(pbuh) supporters are treating the hildabeast badly). My mother is your typical middle of the road Democrat not to radical but left of center and she and those like her are the majority of voters in the party I really believe that MCcamnesty is going to win in a landslide. When will the fools in the Dhimmi party get a clue that the worst thing to happen to their party was the take over of the hard left?

Endlessly fascinating, isn't it? I mean the pundits who are apparently flummoxed by the Obamassiah's behavior and associations of the last two decades or so. They can't understand why the great unwashed, obviously inferior to the enlightened like themselves, home grown nitwit terrorists, racist reverends and oh so chic radical priests take offense at the enlightened, superior beings that they are. What's all the fuss?

It's really quite simple. Rational people don't choose to associate with racists, murderers, haters and radicals of any stripe. Recognizing such people as unhinged, destructive, anti American and anti-civilization, they steer clear of them, or should they find themselves unwittingly receiving such revealed wisdom from the pulpit of a church, do not make the mistake of patronizing that "church" again. Rational people are well grounded in right and wrong, concepts that continually elude the enlightened. They do not associate with deranged scum because they (the scum) are wrong in every way, in their very being, because by associating with them, they lend their civility to the uncivil, their integrity to those who have none. They don't associate with them because it is wrong and they know the difference.

What then do Obama's associations reveal about him? It's obviously beyond the chattering classes, but most Americans can figure it out. It is far more than mere political expediency (though one should never dismiss that factor in the machinations of a Chicago machine politician like Obama) Obama associates with such people because he likes them. He shares their beliefs. He is comfortable in their presence, in their superior glow which suffuses all about them. He is one of them, twenty years ago and now.

The danger is that, even more this year than when Kerry was running for the presidency, the media will say and do anything to destroy McCain and deify Obama. Truth? Fact? Not a consideration when a greater truthiness is in the offing. While MSM integrity is in tatters, it isn't completely destroyed. Will it be enough this year? God help us if it is, for the Ayers, Wrights, Pflegers, Rezkos and yes, the Obamas, will be our masters, a role for which they believe themselves divinely--to the terribly limited extent to which they acknowledge a deity--appointed to the task. They will not hesitate to use every power at their command to make us do what they alone know is good for us, nor will they fail to usurp any power or individual right in the pursuit of such noble goals.

I don't think the problem will be those of us remembering who actually care, it will be the MSM's ability to forget and then demonize those with recall.

An extremely well thought out comment and I agree wholeheartedly. We will be forcefed his BLT inspired by Marx.

What I find fascinating are the arguments of Obama supporters that going to the same church for twenty years in no way suggests that Obama actually accepted Wright's (or Pfleger's) arguments.

Some have suggested that it's like having a friend that you disagree about baseball with. You don't give up the friend simply because they're Yankee supporters and you're a Red Sox fan, now do you?

Others have suggested that, as Pfleger is a Catholic priest, criticism of Obama implies that those who disagree w/ Pfleger should abandon the Catholic Church.

The intellectual twists and turns are simply breath-taking.
