Obama and "Blind Faith"

Christopher Hitchens does not feel the Obamarapture:
To have accepted Obama's smooth apologetics is to have lowered one's own pre-existing standards for what might constitute a post-racial or a post-racist future. It is to have put that quite sober and realistic hope, meanwhile, into untrustworthy and unscrupulous hands. And it is to have done this, furthermore, in the service of blind faith. Mark my words: This disappointment is only the first of many that are still to come.
Worth a full read, in my opinion.

Great blog! Hitchens is pretty liberal, but he knocked this one out of the park. You might like an article I wrote on my blog about the Obamma/wright fiasco. Check it out.
