Apropos the many developing Palin scandals, an observer of the Chicago political scene reminds me of Obama’s “noted eerie knack for finding self-destructing opponents.”
There was Alice Palmer, the incumbent State Senator who didn’t submit enough valid signatures. There was Blair Hull, the apparent frontrunner in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate, accused of wife-beating. There was Jack Ryan, the Republican Senate nominee, whose kinkily erotic side spilled out into the newspapers through his divorce proceedings. And then there was the comic carpetbagger Alan Keyes.
I try to keep theology separate from politics, but it’s hard to escape the thought: If Obama didn’t make a pact with Satan he must be on a special mission from God.
Update Or perhaps, a reader suggests, this may merely be a case where “Fortune favors the prepared mind.”
