The Africa tour about nothing continues, as a compliant media continues to treat Barack Obama like a prince. Whatever he does, whatever he says is treated with unquestioned reverence.
A CBS-2 story just breathlessly informed us that Prince Barack is concerned about corruption in Kenya.
Sen. Obama said he may ask the president of Kenya about that Friday when they meet.This, just a week after Prince Barack was on the same stage as Governor Rod Blagojevich, who is under nine separate state and federal corruption investigations, and state Treasurer hopeful Alexi Giannoulias, whose bank made loans to mobsters.
"Corruption has been pervasive in this country. It's considered one of the 20 most corrupt nations on earth in terms of just daily interactions, everything from the top of the government all the way down to the bureaucraticâ€¦ at the airports," Obama said.
Did Barack speak up last week about corruption in Springfield at the State Fair? Guess it's OK in this state, when it involves his own political party. Just don't let it happen in Kenya. Roll tape.
