Yes, and then Smerconish asked about Smerconish's own handguns, Obama said he supported the 2nd, and that it was an individual right. But that there needed to be regulation and tracking, for example like in Philly to keep cops from being shot -- so Smerconish asked about Mumia Abu-Jamal, a late seventies radical Black panther and convicted, yet not yet executed, cop-killer. Mumia is a cause-celebre amoung the Hollywood-type elite, with the Europeans. Obama said that he was unfamiliar with the case.
And Smerconish said that was cool, too.
The Mumia Abdul-Jamal case is a franchise Smerconish owns, Smerconish has co-written books with the murdered policeman's widow. Yet it was okay and fine that Obama, under the tutelage in the late-seventies of another black radical, Frank Davis, "did not know nothing".
And it is okay too, to use Mumia's full name, but to use Obama's full name gets Smerconish into an O'reilly-esque dither.
Meantime on the other Philly talker -- 990 AM -- Bill Bennett was doing a great, exhaustive interview with Stanley Kurtz about the whole Acorn-Ayers-Obama issue. And it is an issue -- the most important one of this campaign, despite the dithering of the pansies.
too bad, I wish 990 (WIP? ) had the 50,000 watt transmitter, I can’t get it.
WPHT is on a steady march to the left. They would dump Rush, Beck, and Hannity if they didn’t bring in so much advertising money.
Smerconish likes to dismiss it as the most casual sort of "association." Thomas Sowell article posted here the other night emphasized it is an ALLIANCE. That's where I think McCain's ad went wrong, calling them "friends," should have called the "allies."
Thank you for the summary. I heard a snippet of the obama/smerconish make-out session last night. I mentioned it in another thread that smerconish’s wife is fund raiser for obama. Wikipedia, if it is to be believed, states that his wife is a major fund raiser. I just wonder if that has anything to do with smerconish getting the interview and the kid-glove approach that smerconish took when addressing each issue.
