Shocked Yet?

So the latest installment from the Andrew Breitbart Seance the wingnutosphere is conducting (for how long? who knows?) is video of law student Barack Obama participating in a protest in support of professor Derrick Bell’s efforts to get Harvard to hire more African-American faculty. This was in 1991, which my calendar indicates was more than twenty years ago.

A portion was released by Buzzfeed (which was mainly of interest because Barack Obama as a law student sounds a lot like Barack Obama as president) but apparently, it’s not the whole thing, so now the Breitbart minions are going to show the whole thing live on Sean Hannity’s show.

This sort of fresh, relevant information clearly ought to decide the 2012 presidential election, right? And it would, if only the godless liberal media wouldn’t refuse to acknowledge it’s proof he’s not fit to be president!

Snakes alive, it must get really loud in that echo chamber.
