You gotta wonder how many rednecks will circulate this information about Obama. Not many, as this is reality. Tom Baxter for Southern Political Report:
It seemed Obama was less interested in making his road to the cross dramatic than in making it plausible: A simple story which many in the church could relate to, settling any lingering doubts about the stories on the web that he has Muslim ties. In some of the Feb. 5 states where he’ll be competing, such a long explanation might not be necessary. In South Georgia, which Flannery O’Connor once referred to as “Christ-haunted,” it is.
Full story about Obama in Macon yesterday here. As for O’Connor, she might have said something like this about the Senator from Illinois: Obama’s campaign would have been a good thing if it’d had Bill Clinton there to shoot it every day.
(First person to ID the above short story I’m referencing gets to have lunch at my club, without me! Come on folks…. this is soooooo English 101.)
