The Audacity of Hype: Barack Obama

How can it be that Senator Obama, who sat in Rev. Wright's church for 20 years, did not hear the inflammatory racial and anti-semitic statements made by Wright? It's preposterous that Obama's ears were attuned to the divine while Wright raved that "Bill Clinton did to us what he did to a young female congressional aide." It's very heady spiritual stuff. It's no wonder that Obama praises the Reverend as the inspiration of his book: The Audacity of Hope. How can one fail to be inspired by the "KKK U.S. of A" and "not God Bless America but God- DAMN America!"

The MSM is still entranced by the glowing oratory, the pathological smile, and "shivers running down their legs." Massive media cognitive dissonance extends also to the Rezko affair where financial favors were bestowed on Obama in the purchase of real estate. Not to mention that the Obama campaign has an arithmetic problem, revising their statesments of how much Rezko contributed to Obama campaigns by $90,000 bringing the total to $250,000.

Lynn Samuels of Sirius Left Radio had a good point also in mentioning that Obama essentially had no real opponent in his one national senate race. Obama won his Senate post against Alan Keyes who was hastily rushed in on short notice after the original Republican candidate was disgraced by association with a wife-sex-swapping ring. Looks like the Kennedys, Kerrys and Dodds got themselves a sure-fire candidate. Sure fire if you're aiming at your feet, that is.
