"I could no more disown Wright than..."

Victor Davis Hanson on the "Scary Legacy of the 2008 Democratic Party"

His convoluted explanation of African-American right-brain 'oral' culture as more creative, musical, and spontaneous versus European left-brain traditional analysis could never have been given by someone white to that audience without justifiably earning booing and catcalls.

Three comments: this was just the sort of racist 'genetic' difference that most Americans learned to shun, now apparently quite acceptable again, and part of the mainstream.
In short, Wright's speech on black-right brainers, white-left brainers — replete with bogus stereotypes and crude voice imitations — was about as racist as they come and at one time antithetical to what the NAACP was once all about. Again, the Obama campaign and its appendages have set back racial relations a generation. Just ten years ago, any candidate, black or white, would have rejected Wright making a speech about genetic differences in respective black and white brains. Now it's given to civil rights organizations by the possible next President's pastor and spiritual advisor — and done to wild applause for an organization founded on the idea that we are innately the same, while being gushed over by ignorant "commentators."

Ahh... change.

And look new politics:

When called out on something — say, misquoting McCain on the 100 years statement — Obama's reflexive move is to insist the person doubting his credibility is lying. When Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopolous asked him tough questions, his followers screamed bloody murder.

The strategy is clear: when you say something negative about Obama, you will be accused of lying.

Basically, someone used recordings of BHO to prove he lied about an issue, but we can't have that.

And more about those pesky facts distracting us from a message of hope and unity.

Ahh... and now Obama trows right under the Bus.
Glen has a roundup, including from Jim Geraghty:

Obama says, "the man I saw yesterday was not the man I knew for 20 years." You buy that?

Two options:

1) BHO is a hopeless rube that didn't know Wright had been spewing this crap for years.
2) BHO thinks you are a hopeless that didn't know Wright had been spewing this crap for years.
