The liberal mind is an interesting thing to study. It defies logic on such a regular basis that it belies classification. It is slave to neither logic or emotion exclusivley. Rather, it toggles between the two at will, depending on the demands of the particular argument at hand. Truly a unique and mind-bending specimen, the Liberal mind.
Apparently there is a video tape that depicts Barack Obama in attendance at a 2003 send off banquet honoring Rashid Khalidi, a Palestinian scholar and activist. This video tape was given to the LA Times who have suddenly decided not to release the tape to the general public claiming that they are under an obligation not to air the tape.
The McCain campaign is demanding that the Obama supporting LA Times release the video tape.
My question is: Who gives a video tape to a major media outlet, and then demand that they not release it?
The LA Times excuse for not releasing the tape is very implausible, and stinks to high heaven of media bias.
In the tank for Obama anyone?
If that blatant example of media bias weren't enough, Obama supporting liberals are now simultaneously arguing that Obama's relationship to Khalidi is no big deal and then in the next breath, argue that the tape should not be released.
Well which is it? Is Obama's relationship with Khalidi no big deal?
Then what, one wonders, is the harm in releasing the tape?
At some point here, the last thread of logic is lost.
Just release the tape, LA Times, and this thing goes away.
So long as there's a tape that exists still unreleased, there will always be this additional unresolved partial-revelation about a man who, as we learn more, has a veritable tapestry of shady and/or questionable associations that all share more or less the same sort of anti-American and/or anti-Zionist bent.
But in the new Stalinst 'Obamerica', we're not allowed to ask such questions or have such concerns, I guess.
No doubt the comrades in the MSM will succeed in suppressing any further evidence, including this video tape, that may depict Obama in even the slightest of unfavorable lights.
Here's to hoping that there's something left of America in 2012.
