Farrakhan This

Glenn Greenwald has a nice piece on a radical pastor who has just announced his support for … McCain!

Anybody want to bet Tim Russert will be grilling St. John about this any time soon? Anybody want to bet McCain will be required to denounce and reject this support?

Didn't think so.

And whatever happened to His Holy Maverickness and his straight talk about the agents of intolerance? That is soooo last campaign, I guess.

How about this for a double standard.. Rev. Billy Graham's comments about Jews and the deaf silence on them:

"they don't know how I really feel about what they are doing to this country."

Listen to the comments:

Now why aren't the Clinton's asked to denounce and repudiate Minister Graham?

See the warm fuzzy photos:

You reality-based types and your insistence on facts. ;^)

Here are the above links, linkified, since it looks like they might be a little hard to cut and paste.

BTW, jb, if you don't know how to make a hyperlink, and you want to learn, maybe this will help. Or maybe you just didn't know that you could post links in the comments -- no diss intended.
