OMFG!

This changes everything!

Oh wait -- they've only met twice?

Never mind.

THERE IS NO STORY HERE, ACCORDING TO THE
DOCUMENTARY BY FOX NEWS, OBAMA'S FATHER HAS OTHER
CHILDREN WITH OTHER WOMEN, TO FIND ONE BROTHER
IS NO STORY, UNLESS YOU FIND ALL HIS BROTHERS AND
SISTERS, WHAT'S THE POINT, WHAT IF OBAMA DOESN'T
EVEN KNOW THIS MAN, OR MAYBE HE DOES, WHAT IS THE
POINT, OBAMA HAS NEVER LIVED IN KENYA, HIS
MOTHER IS NOT THIS MAN'S MOTHER!
THIS IS ON THE FATHER, IF THIS MAN IS EVEN RELATED
TO OBAMA!
STOP GRASPING AT STRAWS!

Off topic, Lynn but, if you talk to the Obama campaign tell them please, please please don't pick either Bayh or Clinton.
both would be horrid choices.

VANITY FAIR FOUND THIS MAN, I DON'T KNOW IF
THEY ARE TRYING TO GRASP AT STRAWS, OR WHAT THEIR
INTENT TRUELY IS, BARACK OBAMA HAS ACKNOWLEDGED
MEETING HIS HALF-BROTHER WHEN HE WAS FIVE YEARS
IN THE LATE 80'S!
MAYBE VANITY FAIR CAN FIND JIMMY HOFFA!

To me this is a disturbing story.

Senator Obama is aware of his sibling's existence and has met him at least twice.

With the income that he has and the connections he has you would hope that he would do something to help him and any other brother or sister he has.

That would be the right thing to do!

I wouldn't hold this v. Obama except for the fact the liberal blogs where all over Cindy McCain having a half-sister, etc. So whats that old saying, "no double-standard, please."

However, this does make Obama's speech concerning Black fathers seem even more relevant. Its obvious Barack had a dead-beat dad. And he wants that ended. And makes Jackson's outrage about this more factual, also. This makes Jackson's hypocrisy even more obvious.

Lynn, why is your paper hiding on this Annenberg Challenge controversy? When Obama headed this project for Bill Ayers. Could be a big story. Follow the money trail and (lack) results. And why UIC (which is a STATE school) isn't letting investagators look at the documents....What are they hiding?

Obama is surely pleased.

As Vanity Fair has noted, Brother George's existence is 'the epitome of green'.

And how did Brother George attain this extinction of all attachment, this ineffable ultimate? How does he put us to shame by leaving almost no carbon footprint?

Well, you start out in a hut cooled solely by gentle breezes with no electricity and no plumbing to pollute nearby waters. Oh, and you walk everywhere; no need for gas with no automobile.

Join Obama for CHANGE NOW and receive your copy of "Nirvana On A Dollar A Week".


Phil Smith Jr.,
Please quit posting in all caps. That is the equivalent of SHOUTING online. There's no need to do that.

MAYBE HE CAN COME TO AMERICA AND LIVE IN ONE OF
MCCAIN'S HOMES, SINCE HE DOESN'T KNOW WHERE THE
HOUSES ARE LOCATED!
