Anti-Obama folks go nuts on Michelle Obama based on an intentionally misinterpreted comment lifted (without context) from a speech.
Bill O'Reilly only supports a "lynching party" if Michelle Obama really isn't proud to be an American.
Hillary Clinton creates a website (Delegatehub.com) filled with a series of misrepresentations, lies of omissions and plain old bullshit.
The New York Times decides its time to jerk John McCain's chain by alluding to potential improprieties without a shred of hard evidence.
Hillary Clinton warns us all that we need to be wary of smooth rhetoric and soundbites by saying poetic and persuasive things like "It's time that we move from good words to good works, from sound bites to sound solutions" herself.
Meanwhile, the Clinton campaign is still trying to figure out why Barack Obama keeps winning and the most conservative elements of the Republican party remain flabbergasted that a right-wing standard-bearer couldn't beat McCain.
WHY, WHY, WHY? What is going on around here?
I might be wrong, but I think this guy might have it figured out:
"You don't need a poll to know that the vast majority of Americans--Republican, Democratic and Independent--are weary of the dead zone that politics has become, in which narrow interests vie for advantage and idealogical minorities seek to impose their own versions of absolute truth. Whether we're from red states of blue states, we feel in our gut the lack of honesty, rigor and common sense in our policy debates, and dislike what appears to be a continuous menu of false or cramped choices...Perhaps more than any other time in our recent history, we need a new kind of politics, one that can excavate and build upon those shared understandings that pull us together as Americans."
Just in case you don't recognize that explanation... It's author is currently winning the Democratic nomination.
Not a coincidence.
Now, let's see if it can last.
