Poor Obama...

Back when Bill Clinton was president, he had to deal with what had been referred to as "bimbo explosions"; which meant that women for whom he had allegedly fooled around with would come out of nowhere from time to time and cause him problems.

Fast forward to this year, and Barack Obama now has to deal with what I will call "pastor eruptions"; that is, religious men who do and say outrageous things that get Barack in trouble. Here is a video of the latest "pastor eruption", and this time it isn't Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Nope, it's Father Michael Phleger. Have a look:

Can you see Barack, after watching this, smacking his forehead in disbelief? Those men think they're helping, while in truth, they are doing the opposite. I'm not sure what to say about that or their behavior. It could be that these men just want the attention, even if it means hurting Barack. I don't think they intend to hurt Barack, it's just what results - and their desire for attention right now seems to be overcoming their sense of reason. It could be that they feel that this is their shot at being in the limelight, and they don't want to miss it - even if they end up hurting the candidate that they allegedly support. Time will tell about how damaging their behavior will be on Barack.
