Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post goes to bat for Barack Obama, discounting a CNN poll in the process. How often does that happen among liberal columnists? The awkward poll in question shows black support for Obama withering.
Rather than credit blacks with the ability to judge on their own whether or not Obama is ready for prime time, Robinson indulges in paranoia politics, hypothesizing the phenomenon of blacks fearing "they" will not allow Obama to win. "They" are just the people, Mr. Robison.
The column is a sterling example of seeing everything through the lens of racial victimhood. Obsession is not too strong a word.
