Is Obama's scrutiny pass now gone?

<p>Now that ABC has connected Obama to his pastor (ironic he had to prove that he was a practicing Christian and now this might hurt him more than if he was muslim) more things are coming out.</p>

<p>What's next...?</p>

<p>Well, he did release his earmarks. It'll take awhile to vet those and make him look like a typical politician.</p>

<p>Probably the same thing that happens every time a minor and relatively unexciting fact about a politician surfaces, which is pundits and opponents crowing about it while everybody else gets on with their lives. It's much easier to attack people based on a single event, quote, or speculation than to launch a reasoned argument against their policies. </p>

<p>You should have figured out by now that the media jumps on it because "The scandal that could sink [X]" makes a great headline, even if people with the reasoning capacity of a turnip know that it's not really a scandal and that it will have little effect. Remember when people were saying that McCain was done because he dropped the "gook" bomb? Yeah... no.</p>

<p>The "gook" bomb? Hmmmm....evidently, many people have already forgotten that one.:rolleyes:</p>
