That is the only explanation I have.
I mean, Obama got his "Sister Souljah" Moment. And he did not even have to do anything, Jesse Jackson did it to himself!
This guy continuously steps in it. I know he is a smart guy, but still, he wins a State Senate race because his opponents can't figure out how to submit a petition. He then gets elected to the US Senate after TWO (not one but TWO) of his opponents have messy divorce skeletons in their closets, causing him to run against Alan Keyes (who is STILL not making sense).
And when he is trying to run toward the center (after running the primary far to the left), Jesse Jackson does his work for him. I surrender.
He is the Messiah and God's chosen one.
Or maybe he is the Kwisatz Haderach.
