Without any sense of irony, the media has created a new narrative that the McCain campaign’s sharp attacks on Obama are to blame for inciting every angry and misinformed crank at their rallies. So let’s just get this straight. When Louis Farrakhan praised Obama as the Messiah and Hamas endorsed Obama as the second coming of JFK, the argument was that he can’t be responsible for all of his supporters. When questions are raised about Obama’s close 20-year relationship with racist pastor Jeremiah Wright, his personal friendship with former PLO spokesman and leading anti-Israel professor Rashid Khalidi, business dealings with convicted felon Tony Rezko, and ties to unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers, we’re told it’s an unfair attempt to establish “guilt by association.” With Obama, all that matters is whatever he is currently saying. Yet when an angry dude grabs a microphone at a McCain town hall and says he’s scared of Obama, and old woman says Obama’s an Arab, it tells you all you need to know about McCain —even though McCain himself immediately condemns them and defends Obama
