The Audacity of Unreconstructed Old Fashioned Paleo-Liberal Identity Politics Conspiracy Mongering

Michelle Obama gives a speech, not about "hope", but about "hopelessness". Maybe that's not what she meant her speech to stand for, but when you break down what she says, that's what it comes down to. In essence, she states, 'unless you are a white male from a wealthy background, you are screwed'.

Her own life experience, and that of her husband, her family members, and most Americans in general, would seem to show the obvious flaws in that conceit, but that conceit still sells well in front of the kinds of audiences that Sen. Obama must sway to earn the Democratic party's nomination for President.

Pastor Jeff does an excellent job of breaking this down even further, read what he has to say on the subject.

Thanks for the link-love.

Great title, by the way. You summarized my post in about 10 words.

We are indeed poor, pitiful, powerless victims -- but Obama will triumph over our enemies and lead us into the promised land.
