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?
