You bastards!

 Time for another “You bastards!” letter…

You bastards!  I have never seen such a hatchet job on a presidential candidate in my life!  It is clear after Obama’s speech that there is nothing he could possibly do to keep Joe Scarborough and his sycophants from endlessly harping on his relationship with his pastor.  As if a pastor is just another paid professional who can be discarded because he or she says something you occasionally disagree with.  It is bizarre beyond description why you insist that Obama ostracize his own pastor (not that anything would satisfy your blood lust) while it is perfectly acceptable (to you giants of the fourth estate) when Prince George disdains any leader who won’t kiss his brush-clearing ass.  Why is it that not a single intrepid reporter has managed to garner an interview with the controversial Christian?  Are you afraid you may have to deal with an intellect greater than your pigmy minds can do battle with?

 As much as I hate to do your research for you, you establishment-stooge bobble-head pundits, there is another point of view out there.  It is sober, reasoned, and contrary to the mud-wrestling contest you are trying to turn presidential politics into, it just might offer a way out of the societal swamp you’d like your viewers to wallow in.  If you won’t talk to the man himself, I dare you bastards to interview Susan Thistlewaite about Jeremiah Wright.  She is an ordained minister of the United Church of Christ since 1974, 11th President of Chicago Theological Seminary, and a Professor of Theology at the seminary for 20 years.  Are you afraid that this learned white woman will run circles around you and your so-called experts?  I dare you bastards to calmly and rationally examine the arguments of Dr. Jeremiah Wright, Jr. instead of vilifying him.  Why don’t you go out into the real world and do some real investigative journalism instead of sitting pretty in your 1984 Orwellian “breaking news” fear factories…

PS — Today’s spit bib goes to Joe Scarborough.  He is so enamored of Hillary and Dick Cheney’s machismo that I suspect he wishes men like Joe Stalin and Adolph Hitler were still around (so he could sleep well at night!)…
