How Was This Not Corruption? Why Does Nobody Seem Interested in It?

Eric Whitaker

An interesting set of “Impromptus” as a whole, but I’m particularly interested for the moment in the section about the Reverend Jeremiah Wright and a close friend of Senator and now President Barack Obama named Eric Whitaker.

The source for this story is Edward Klein, formerly foreign affairs editor of Newsweek and editor-in-chief of The New York Times Magazine.  I don’t think he can easily be dismissed as a right wing nutjob.

His new book is available from Amazon.com.

But seriously, folks.  Really.  Set aside your ideological loyalties for thirty seconds, if need be.

If a close friend of Mitt Romney’s had attempted anything like this, if there were even a vague rumor about such a thing, is there any way on the planet that the mainstream media wouldn’t be all over it for weeks and weeks on end, tut-tutting and hyperventilating?
