The traditional media, cable talking heads, and quite a few large progressive blogs have regurgitated the Obama story like a pack of nomads wandering in the political desert in search of sustenance; people bankrupt of political or factual integrity looking for the answer and refusing to see what was in front of their faces all along. The question is whether the journalists who bought into the Obama hype, along with the cable talking heads who propped his campaign up, and the Obama blogs who didn’t care one whit about the facts or his record but were only interested in spreading their Hillary hatred, have got so much invested they won’t have the honesty, the integrity, and the moral courage to back peddle on their craven cave in before it’s not only too late for them, but too late for the Democratic party.

Barack Obama isn’t an original. He’s the first 21st century L. Ron Hubbard of politics, Elmer Gantry, name your huckster.

“I have a dream” just became “I have a con.”

Regardless of Ms. Marsh’s critique of the supporters of Obama, it is interesting that she invokes the name of L. Ron Hubbard, by comparison, as a huckster. Too bad L. Ron isn’t available for rebuttal … my, wouldn’t that be fun!
