About a week ago, I highlighted how Chicago Sun-Times reporter Lynn Sweet was part of the new attack on Sen. Obama. What a difference a week, and $25 million, can make. Just check out the headline.

"Money talks for Obama
$25 million haul shows just how powerful a candidate he really is." (emphasis mine)

Screw her, she's been a total waste of space about Obama. She didn't even know enough about the madrassa smear to state the facts on Hardball. It was atrocious.

Hey Paddy
This chick is simply one of many ignorant reporters who simply spews whatever she believes will sell papers.

Obama may surprise a whole lot of reporters in the future. Amazing amount of money raised. Surprise!!! I'll bet Hilary is a bit worried here.

Wait a minute, I'm confused...does she write for the Sun Times or the Tribune? They're different papers. However, usually the Tribune is a more of a tool for the Republicans than the Sun Times.

Either way, the woman is a skank.

Here's an off topic, but funny as hell. Newt Gingrich's apology for the term "ghetto language"...

//Newt Gingrich, who recently created an uproar when he said that bilingual education taught "the language of living in a ghetto" and suggesteed that it was a waste to print electoral ballots in multiple languages "depending on who randomly shows up" to vote. Not surprisingly, Hispanic Americans were outraged at his characterization of their native tongue as a ghetto language. Yesterday, Newt tried to clarify by saying, essentially, "no no I meant the Jews" — not exactly an ideal backtrack (and kind of ironic timing considering it's Passover, festival of freedom). Gingrich's point — and he did have one — was that people who don't speaky the language cut themselves off from "language of prosperity." Oooh, so that's what was holding back the Jews in Lodz!//

That guy is an incredible racist pig. How can anyone take him seriously?

Watching Newty try to speak Spanish was hilarious. He's hanging himself.

It won't be surprising to see some switch to auto-fawn now that Barak Star has raked in some meaningful cash. It's not unlike the schlepper who gets ignored until word spreads that he/she's rolling in $. Then suddenly they're prom king/queen.
