The 'Great Unraveling' continues. There are lightweights in the pundit field and there is a class of them I am now calling "Pinkertons". And I don't mean the people that chased down Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. This guy is the lamest of the lame. I've written about him a few times, most notably when he said this on FOX News Watch about the media:

Pinkerton: The media typically come at the Bush administration from the left. They say the Iraq war is a terrible idea. The idea of going after the administration from the right as it were, that they're not supporting the troops enough, not body armor enough, not Humvee enough, not helping at Walter Reed enough. That is an angle that reporters don't naturally think of when they're waking up in the morning...(see video here)

Anyway, after attacking Obama over Bill Ayers relentlessly, he's found a new connection that will shift the election back to McCain in his new column "The Devil Is In The Details: Another Obama Connection You Ought to Know About.

Could Lucifer play a role in this presidential election? It may sound crazy, but one of the candidates in this race has publicly praised, even emulated, a writer-activist who himself paid tribute to Lucifer. That’s right, Lucifer, also known as the Devil, Satan, Beelzebub—you get the idea.


Do you think that admiring a Lucifer-admirer would make a difference to some voters? So why hasn’t he highlighted the Alinsky-Lucifer connection?

John McCain hasn't brought this up because it's idiotic and borders on outright lunacy. Of course he's got a nice gig with FOX News to peddle this insanity to. Even the FOX commenters on his post are a bit stunned with his column. As commenter RC says:

This article is a joke, right? Seriously… it’s a joke? RIGHT?

And there's more hyjinks in the comment section....


Here's his email. and ask Pinky if he's sane, but be nice.
