imageAlthough I support the idea of intervening to stop atrocities in Africa, perhaps Phyllis Chesler could have figured out a better way to press Obama on it than "How are you going to convince your supporters not to hate black people?"

The recent "Bush loves Africa" push on the part of the right is pretty much going to be the one area of socially acceptable policy supremacy they can attempt to claim; this is because it's the one area of his presidency America isn't intimately aware of and therefore doesn't hate with the burning passion of a thousand unemployed suns. But it takes the audacity of a crack binge to spend the past two years insinuating that Obama is an African Muslim and then turn around and question his allegiance to the same people to whom he was going to send unsold Chryslers and PS3s after January 20th.
