Continuing the "New Kind of Politics"...

Barack Obama is as far as I can tell the first Presidential Candidate in history to be given an almost limitless line of credit on his "Get Out of Jail" card by Big Media. And frankly, I'm getting sick of it.

In the latest iteration, Obama's knees again turn to Jello when he is faced with the prospects of criticizing anyone supporting him, no matter what they do or say (a trait McCain decidedly does not share...):

A NEW KIND OF POLITICS: "Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) declined twice Saturday to personally repudiate a liberal radio host's declaration that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is a 'warmonger.'"

Apparently, Obama lacks the backbone to repudiate any of his supporters. I'm not the first to note the contrast here. I expect the press to give him a pass on it, but people will notice nonetheless.

It simply does not seem to matter; be it a 20-year association with a pastor who is a race bigot, an endorsement from Louis Farrakhan, lots of money and a new house from a Chicago racketeer, or a picture of mass murderer Che Guevara behind his campaign chairwoman in Houston--nothing is to be criticized, everything is picture perfect, all the time. Nothing is ever wrong with "this picture", at least to hear Obama the "Messiah" tell it.

How vapid can you get?
