We can only talk about "hope" and "change" during the rest of the presidential campaign, Barack "Don't call me Neville" Obama has proclaimed.
It is off-limits to talk about William Ayers, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, race (except for his glorious speeches on the topic), Tony Rezko, corruption in Illinois, arms dealers in Iraq, "present" votes in the Illinois Senate, gun ban questionnaire answers, appeasment and now, his wife Michelle.
That's even though his wife is on the campaign trail giving substantive addresses with a sharp ideological edge. She also writes fundraising letters that demonize conservatives in a highly distortive manner.
In a world without gaping hypocrisy, it would be noted that "protecting" a professional and accomplished woman like Michelle Obama is patronizing to women and insulting to the rest of us. But not in a world where the proclamations of Barack Obama are treated as edicts from a higher plane.
