I like the Pajamas Media. This is a blog-lovers blog. A collection of all sorts of opinions and news that offers readers a cornucopoia of thought-provoking prose.
A recent post, though, about Barack Obama and the Trinity Church, in which Bernard Chapin says that Obama, the church and outrageous reverend Jeremiah Wright will forever be linked as “inseperable peas in a leftist pod” is a bit over the top.
Unfortunately, Barack Obama may well be our next president, but he is surrounded by individuals who have nothing but disdain and contempt for our nation. He even shares a bed with one. Clearly, Reverend Wright was no aberration because his replacement, Otis Moss III, is an ideological clone. Moss is well known to Obama, who described him as a “wonderful young pastor.”
Like most political miscues (Bill Clinton sleeping with an intern and Hillary Clinton being linked to white supremicists in her early legal career, to name a couple) are soon forgotten.
Barack Obama will be measured by the decisions he makes as president, assuming he wins in November. Americans will praise hime, when unemployment declines and vilify him, when universal health care flops.
As far as Obama’s religious choices, most Americans will view these as the average Catholic treats the weekly obligation — it’s only important when others are watching.
And they won’t be watching Obama on Sundays.
