Do You See the Light?

One of the by products of the public at large becoming aware of Jeremiah Wright is Legacy Media playing the Goose/Gander card. In this case, if Obama has an ignorant bigmouth for a spiritual advisor, surely Hillary must also have some religious vulnerability, right? Well, when the clowns at The Nation go looking, don't you dare tell them they won't find anything even vaguely similar:

So there's a Bible study group she belonged to in the White House and another in the Senate, which is sponsored by The Family. So what. A Bible study group, as probably no one at the Nation knows, it not like a secret society. You sit around and discuss the Bible and pray some. No animals are sacrificed or blood oaths taken. No coded messages exchanged.

Perhaps we can put this in terms the Nation might understand. Imagine there is a reading group that gets together to read Gramsci's Prison Notebooks and debate whether it is heretical or not. The shabby bookstore they meet in, several members of the group, and who knows what else, is probably one degree of separation or two from the Red Army Faction and the FARC. It's a small world. This doesn't mean everybody in the reading group is a Red, though granted, it's reason to pause for thought.

Wow - I'm defending Hillary Clinton; quite the unmedicated mood swing, even for me.
