Remember John Edwards? Who broke the Edwards story? The National Enquirer of course.

After that coup, the left, which patently refused to mention the Edwards scandal decided that anything the Enquirer wrote about Sarah Palin had to be the gospel truth. They could talk about her alleged affair. They could speculate that her baby was not really her baby. They could go after her kids. After all, the National Enquirer covered it.

The National Enquirer now suggests Barack Obama had an underage, gay affair with a pedophile. Yup. That Frank Marshall Davis guy Barry says was his good friend? Turns out he was a perv of the first order and liked young boys.

This post is not intended to spread that rumor...

[snip] What goes around, comes around.

You stay classy, Mr. Erickson. There isn't one shred of evidence that any such relationship or molestation occurred and you know it. A broken clock is always right twice a day, but that's enough for you to quote the Enquirer, right? Are you suggesting that this would have any effect on Obama's ability to lead our country? Would those effects be any different to say...being a POW for 5 years?

Can you help us out?
