If Chris Rock had done the same routine mocking Hillary, it would have been a big collective shrug, and perhaps some giggles. Chris Rock has always been politically incorrect and not one to hesitate poking at our sexist and racist attitudes we like to pretend don't exist.
But when those things are said by a priest at Barack Obama's church, it's a scandal?
And Barack Obama is supposed to apologize? Apologize for something someone else said?
So he's resigned his church. If that's what ended up going on at my church when I wasn't there, I wouldn't be inclined to go back, either.
But the self-righteous hand-wringing by pundits about this is nauseating. Why not stick to what Barack says, not what other people say?
