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.
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?
