Today, March 13, 2008 Ny Times Op Ed column by William Kristol contains a major prejudicial error. The premise of Mr. Kristol'c column is that Barack Obama was in the pews of his church on July 22 when the pastor of his church delivered the sermon which the Conservatives and the Clinton campaigned have pounced on as evidence of the anti American sentiment of his religious affiliation. It makes no matter that Mr. Obama refuted his pators remarks. It makes even less of an impression that many Americans agree with The Reverened Jeremiah Wright and the message is quite like what they hear from their pulpits each Sunday.
But, let's get back to Mr. Kristol and his attempt to imflame the Conservative penchance for "outrage" with him condemnation of Mr. Obama for not getting up and refuting his Pastors Sermon from the pews.
How could he if he simply was not there? The facts are, Mr. Obama was on his way to Miami, Florida when the sermon was delivered. Here is video evidence.
This is not the first time Mr. Kristol has played with reality to sway opinion in his Times column.
.......AMAZINGLY ENOUGH! I was going to provide links to comtact Mr. Kristol and the Times to if you wanted to inform thm of their error. I did just that when I heard about it. I just checked the link to the article and Mr. Kristol amended it in the on line version, apologizing for his error and not checking facts. I think a lot of people wrote emails!
So, to illustrate this piece, I have a YouTube video of Mr.Kristol getting royally pied at a speaking engagement last year. Here's a link to the noble organization,
The Biotic Baking Brigade, who have been serving up their tasty pies to obnoxious blowhards for a few years now. I think they have some recipes posted as well as gallery of their greatest "hits"!
