Obama's Fantasies

Everyone indulges in personal fantasies, and sometimes they can reveal something important about ourselves. Hillary!'s snipers in Bosnia fantasy tells us something about the way she sees herself and her campaign, or at least how she would like us to regard it. Well, Sen. Obama! has repeatedly told a similar lie that is just as revealing. In it he portrays himself as telling truth to a hostile power of corporate types. Unfortunately for him, the incident was recorded and it wasn't quite the way he seems to remember it.

Ordinarily I have no interest in irony, but this is too rich to pass up -- the man who wants to represent himself as a truth-teller resorts to a lie in order to make that claim.

Read about it here.
