Columbia student Barack Obama wrote for a campus newspaper. The article shows that Obama dreaded American "militarism" and its "military-industrial interests," while effusing enthusiasm for the dangerously delusional nuclear-freeze movement.
Yep, folks! This is the smoking gun that the Right Wing has been looking for! The little tid-bit that would have made ALL the difference in the world and gotten McCain elected if ONLY the MSM had done their damned jobs, instead of kissing Obama's ass...
When he was 22 he didn't like Nuclear Weapons. ANTI-AMERICAN RADICAL!!!!!!11111!!
Yes, that's right, because 1) a person's opinions never deviate one iota from the time they're shielded as a student in college to the time when they have to deal with the real world 2) anyone who doesn't think America needs enough Nuclear Weaponry to destroy all life single-handedly on the planet just wants our nation to be victims 3) the military, apparently, should have no controls on its spending - ever - for our own good, which apparently Obama didn't believe when he was a 22 year old student and 4) the fact that he's in Russia right now trying to come up with a new Nuclear Arms Control Treaty just proves that he hates America and wants to make us weak before the awesome might of Iran and North Korea. Because, you know, having a thousand warheads still is no where near enough to blast those two into the stone age if we really, really needed to - no, we need to have enough to actually eradicate the land masses they occupy as well.
Seriously - as far as I can tell, this is the whole point of this post - if we had only known that Obama wasn't a pro-nukes sort, we would have put Sarah in the White House! Pox on you media for not having dug this up before now...!
Or, as Steve Benen puts it....
Just as the line between the GOP establishment and the unhinged GOP base has become blurred in recent decades, so too has the line between the analysis offered by "serious" and "respectable" conservative voices and the unbalanced tirades put forward by the nutty conservative fringe.
