With friends like Alice Walker, Obama doesn’t need enemies.

Obama shows Hillary how it’s done.

In today’s Guardian, author Alice Walker (whose mediocre novel, The Color Purple, is injected into PC curriculums nationwide-at the expense, of course, of removing a true classic from the syllabus), spouts off about why she is supporting Barack Obama’s candidacy.  Perhaps of some irresistible impulse that may be sincere if impolitic, Walker manages to suggest American soldiers lay down their weapons and drive themselves out of Iraq (target practice) and lays the burden of the Palestinians squarely atop the state of Israel, America’s erstwhile ally.  There’s nonsense aplenty in here, but one more highlight here: As if she hadn’t gotten the memo explaining the logic of one of Obama’s favorite oratorical tricks is a bit faulty, as has been humorously pointed out by hundreds of commentators, she closes with this: “We are the ones we have been waiting for.”

    Obama will have a good friend in Alice Walker who has witnessed the devastation in Gaza and wants to speak truth to the White House just as Chas Freeman wanted to but was scalped.

    I hope that Alice Walker with all her humanity will do what she needs to do to bring the 60 year old crime perpatrated on the Palestinian people by the Zionists to this nation.

    When that injustice is righted, only then will American be more secure as a nation.
