The Bogosity Of Hope

Hey, maybe I’ve been too harsh on the Obama campaign–they have to have quite a well-developed sense of humor to actually send their communications director out to and say this with a straight face:

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: In Philadelphia, just in April, Senator Obama said of Reverend Wright “I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community.” Now he’s cut all ties to Reverend Wright, and left his church. What is it a mistake to wait this long?

ROBERT GIBBS: No, George. I think obviously what Barack Obama made in the past few days is a deeply personal, not a political decision.

Uh-huh. If it is, it would be the first non-political decision Obama has made in his adult life.

Besides, I thought the personal was political.
