Did You Know...

I’ve had such a wonderful, unplugged Sunday with my family. Hope you did, too. Now, I’m looking at Hillary Clinton’s mug on CNN. It’s the “Compassion Forum.” She’s babbling about God and democracy and I don’t know what. Is she going to cry? Oh, no. She’s launching into an anecdote about a woman whose grandson was murdered and how strongly she believes in her faith. Fact checker alert.

“It’s about grace. It’s not about Me.”

She’s laying it on thick.

Agonizingly fake.

More fakery: Hillary swilling beer.

8:36pm Eastern. Newsweek’s Jon Meacham asks with a straight face: “Why do you think it is that a loving God allows people to suffer? …And you have 30 seconds.”

Hillary: All pious. “Ooooooh. I can’t wait to ask him.”

8:39pm Eastern. Campbell Brown: Do you have a favorite Bible story?

Hillary cites the book of Esther.

8:42pm Eastern. A Muslim asks about compassion. Hillary’s talking about Gore bulbs and global warming.

8:47pm Eastern
. Jon Meacham–the guy is asking for an SNL parody–asks with a straight face: “Do you believe God wants you to be president?”

Hillary: “I could be glib and say, ‘I guess we’ll find out.'”

Hillary says she believes in humility.

8:52pm Eastern. The Obamessiah makes his entrance at Messiah College.

Overload.

8:54pm Eastern. First question for Obama is about his small-town clingy diss.

Obama’s new spin: “Cling” is in the Bible! Oh, and it’s the government’s fault.

And this is a distraction.

9:03pm Eastern. Meacham: Does life begin at conception?

Obama: I haven’t come to a firm resolution on that question. I don’t presume to know the answer to that question.

9:10pm Eastern. Meacham asks about Obama’s “babies-as-punishment” remark. Obama: “All I meant was we have to prevent teenage pregnancies.” Actually, he wasn’t talking about “prevention.” He was talking about abortion as after-the-fact birth control.

9:25pm Eastern. Obama: Jeremiah Wright has been distorted.

Meanwhile:

Rev. Jeremiah Wright told a congregation in Norfolk, Va., on Sunday that reporters sneaked into a private funeral service a day before, in which he blasted America’s founding fathers for slavery and white supremacy and received standing ovations for attacking FOX News for covering his anti-American sermons.

Barack Obama’s retiring pastor delivered a sermon at Bank Street Memorial Baptist Church, where his late uncle had been the pastor, about overcoming trouble. The public appearance was his first since news broke that the Democratic presidential candidate’s pastor frequently rails on the United States.

“Some troubles that come up in your life come up out of nowhere,” Wright said. At the end of the two-hour-plus service, about two dozen ministers gathered around Wright and his daughter to pray for them. One of the ministers asked God to give Wright courage as “the world tries to demonize him.”

Though Wright said nothing about Obama or the uproar itself, he alluded to the controversy while briefly back in the pulpit Saturday to deliver a eulogy for a late congregant of Trinity United Church of Christ — former appellate judge R. Eugene Pincham.

Wright, who is on sabbatical before retiring from Trinity United, said America’s mistreatment of blacks is the result of the founding fathers, who “planted slavery and white supremacy in the DNA of this republic.”

First reported by The Chicago Sun Times, Wright told mourners at the funeral that Thomas Jefferson, who partook in “pedophilia,” would also be considered unpatriotic these days because he wrote, “God would punish America for the sin of slavery.” He also quoted Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who said that the U.S. has a “congenital birth defect.”

What a left-left-left wing forum. CNN says there will be another one. Will they be able to find a single conservative leader of faith to ask questions?
