Just got off the air with New Orleans talk-radio host Jeff Crouere. Originally booked on Crouere’s show to talk about Bob Barr, I found myself instead asked to spend a half-hour discussing the Rev. Michael Pfleger’s “white entitlement” sermon against Hillary Clinton. Clearly, this is a hot topic in Louisiana, with its large Catholic population.
Crouere made the point that Barack Obama seems to be surrounded with these radical nutjobs, who pop up out of the woodwork on a regular basis. In March, it was the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. In April, it was Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers. Now, it’s Pfleger, the “brother beloved” whose ridiculous rant has become a YouTube classic just before the DNC meeting in Washington that is to decide whether to seat the Michigan and Florida delegations.
Democrats have to wonder, Crouere said, if Pfleger is the last radical shoe that’s going to drop out of Obama’s closet. By reminding Democrats of this, Pfleger might somehow resurrect the dwindling hopes of Hillary’s nomination. Will this be the miracle that Team Clinton’s been praying for? If so, will it qualify Pfleger for canonization?

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
