Politics and Strange Bedfellows

This morning brought forth a couple of random ruminations about the latest developments in the strangest presidential election campaign in at least a generation:

Considering the enormous efforts that conservative talk radio hosts (Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, etc., etc., etc.) are making to use his relationship with former pastor Jeremiah Wright to discredit Barack Obama, wouldn't it be ironic if credit for the resurrection of Hillary Clinton's campaign rightly goes to a vast, right wing conspiracy? Do you think she would say, "Thank you?"

On a different note, back before Watergate and his conversion to Christianity, it was said of Charles Colson, sometimes known as "Nixon's hatchet man," that he would run over his own grandmother if it would get Richard Nixon elected President. With his speech yesterday, did Barack Obama show the same willingness with regard to his own election and grandmother?

Inquiring minds want to know.
