Obama Smokes. Won’t Someone Think Of The Children?!

Can political discourse in the media possibly get worse?

On the January 17 edition of Fox News’ The Big Story, host John Gibson, during a discussion with Manhattan Institute senior fellow John H. McWhorter and Young Democrats of America’s Malia Lazu about Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) — who on January 16 announced his decision to form a presidential exploratory committee — said: “And [Obama’s] team works overtime trying to hide Obama’s dirty little secret. He is — get this — a cigarette smoker. The point is: What else do we not know about Barack Obama?”

I got this from Media Matters..via Digg.

I hate smoking, even though I’ve been known to do it.

Yet, somehow, I don’t see how Senator Obama smoking has anything to do with anything. Why should I, or anyone else, care? Do political opinion pieces really have to grasp at straws so badly?

Oh, and check out this graphic:

Dear LORD. You have GOT to be kidding. Obviously, that must be a joke.

Josh Gibson:

Obviously, your team does not work overtime to conceal your dirty little secret – that you are a political hack of the worst possible kind.

  1. Reminds me of when he was on Leno. Jay: In your book, you admit to smoking pot. Did you inhale?
    Barack: Isn’t that the point?
    Glad he got that out in the open before they did.

  2. Takes a puff, inhales and lets it out slowly.

    Possibly the only reason I’d vote for Senator Obama.

    With a smile.
