Limbaugh getting desperate...

I'm no fan of Barack Obama, but I am a fan of the truth and of non-distortion, and Limbaugh today on his radio show was all gleeful about an Obama gaffe that wasn't really a gaffe. And the fact that he is trying to portray it as one is rather pathetic...

We've got another Obama gaffe, and this was a great one if ABC has left it up on their website. It was on Good Morning America today, an exclusive interview with Good Morning America, and the subject of this particular interview was campaign low blows versus standard attack ads. And Mark Mooney, ABC reports, quotes Obama as having said on Good Morning America today, "If we're going to ask questions about, you know, who has been promulgating negative ads that are completely unrelated to the issues at hand, I think I win that contest pretty handily."

Obviously, obviously, what he means is that he wins the contest as the victim of those attacks, not as the promulgator of them.

It is interesting to listen to Limbaugh talk. He's been commenting regularly that the Democrats are going to try to destroy Sarah Palin as a person, just as they tried to destroy Clarence Thomas, ya da ya da... "That's what Democrats do."

But at the same time is he and Hannity not doing the same thing to Obama by dragging up all his dirty laundry? I'm sure the Republicans would do it too, if only Obama weren't black... but like illegal aliens, it's impossible to criticize Obama without being hit with the cry of "racism." But when you consider that 99% of the blacks in the US are going to vote for Obama... simply because he's black, is that not racist?

It's just so hypocrticical that they criticize the Democrats for the same things that they themselves do. That's the problems with politicians, frankly. They can't criticize each other because they'd all turn out to be hypocrites if they did.

As an aside...obviously the time for a black President is very close at hand. Hopefully it won't be Obama...but who should it be? Colin Powell? I'd vote for him...
