I have grown weary of all the media effort wasted on Barack Obama's pastor. The simpleminded notion that somehow he would exert some sort of undue authority over government policy in the event of an Obama administration is the kind of thinking that only the chattering chumps could perpetuate. It reminds me of the hubub over JFK's Catholicism somehow turning the U.S. government to the Pope. Thankfully Obama is doing what JFK did and addressing it directly. I've seen the film of JFK, and you can see in the faces of the audience as they listen that they realize how silly the whole thing is; Hopefully Obama can accomplish the same thing and we can get on with life.
