Meagre Pfleger: Obama's Fleas and the Pathetic Cardinal

When I was working with some dubious characters in Hollywood and would complain to my attorney, he would remind me of the cliché “You lie down with dogs, you get fleas.” He had a point. I tried to mend my ways – not always successfully. Hey, it was Hollywood, Washington for pretty people (to reverse another cliché).

Obama seems to have rolled around with more than his share of fleas, the latest being an execrable creep named Rev. Michael Pfleger, now getting his fifteen minutes. I had never heard of the reverend before, not being steeped in Chicago politics. Obama’s cronies Wright, Ayers and now Pfleger hide behind the moniker “progressive,” a bizarre use of the English language that currently appears to give people the right to be racist, sexist and everything else they claim to be opposing. But Pfleger seems to be if anything one degree crazier (and I mean this clinically) than his predecessors in the Obama roll of shame. What’s astonishing in all this is the weak response of Pfleger’s own Catholic church who appear to have let the racist reverend off with a mere slap on the wrist — Cardinal says priest was out of line. But, hey, this is the same Catholic church that took decades to react to pederasty.

For those of you who missed it, here is the “man who needs no introduction.”
