Some of my Republican friends are waxing ecstatic on Facebook and elsewhere over a 2007 video EXPOSING Barack Obama as someone who sounds right at home before an audience of African American ministers (gasp!).
Breathlessly/hopefully hyped Tuesday by Sean Hannity and other Mitt Romney campaign auxiliaries, the clip UNCOVERS Obama -- then a freshman Senator from Illinois -- praising God (OMG!) and calling on communities to heal their own wounds (outrageous!).
The fast-fizzling would-be uproar fomented by Tucker Carlson and other Republican campaign surrogates is as phony as the recent nonsense about Romney supposedly dyeing his face to prepare for an appearance before a Hispanic TV audience.
It's as fake as the notion that a YouTube clip of Romney awkwardly getting down with some black kids -- and inexplicably quoting the novelty song “Who let the dogs out” -- somehow UNMASKS him as a racist.
