Obama’s religion

I posted briefly on this here, but can’t resist calling attention to this smart effort by Peter Leithart to discern Obama’s center of gravity. Of course, Leithart’s critique of Obama sweeps quite widely to encompass many of us (even if we don’t agree with the particulars of Obama’s policy proposals).

Leithart pegs Oprahbama nicely. Thanks for the link.

I’m still curious, Mister Frisk, what is the significance of your using the name "Oprahbama" for Mister Obama?

The purpose is to label him as a glib candidate without substance who appeals to uneducated emotionalism -- who is about feelings and image. A candidate made for the daytime-TV audience.
