If only the papers would run this headline.
Dinesh D’Souza has started an informal charity with the purpose of raising money for George Obama, the other Obama’s poorer half brother.
While Barak cannot spare a few dollars to help his half-brother George, people with much lesser means are even now putting aside a few dollars to help a man they hardly know.
From the article:
Here are some donor comments which I’ll be forwarding to George along with the funds. “This is for the poor brother long forgotten.” “A brother is a terrible thing to waste.” “I wish I had a brother, or even a step-brother. George is not my relative and not my race or religion but I still want to contribute to his welfare.” “When Obama said that not taking care of the least of our brothers is our greatest moral failure, who knew that he was talking literally about the least of his brothers?” “I never thought I’d be writing a check to anyone named Obama, but I do want to be a true Christian and help this man in his shameful situation.” “I’d send more, but I make $9.10 per hour.” “I’m unemployed, but I can spare $5 for the Obama Compassion Fund.”
Is this mostly about politics? Yes.
Is it massively amazing PR? Yes.
Does it benefit George? Yes.
Does is embarass Barack? Yes.

Dinesh D’Souza and David Limbaugh are two men I respect greatly, both for their principles and for their courage.
Of all the substantive columnists I read regularly, these two are those I read the most reliably, popping out of Google Reader to read them on their home sites more consistently than any other writers of the hundreds of articles I peruse each day.
Recent columns from each of these two are noteworthy and well worth reading and I encourage all to add them to their regular reading.
- Dinesh D’Souza – How Christians Ended Slavery
[W]ho killed slavery? The Christians did, while everyone else generally stood by and watched.
- David Limbaugh – Observations on the Presidential Races
It’s disappointing to watch candidates from both parties accept the premise that criticizing your opponents’ records and pointing out their inconsistencies and lies is engaging in dirty politics. It is not dirty but obligatory to draw distinctions between you and your opponents. Dirty politics is distorting one’s record or spreading lies about a candidate.
- Dinesh D’Souza – Are Atheists Cultural Christians?
In The God Delusion, Dawkins portrayed the Christian God as a wicked, avaricious, capricious, genocidal maniac. Dawkins even blasted Jesus for such offenses as speaking harshly to his mother. Yet if the Jewish and Christian God was such a monster, what sense does it make for Dawkins to embrace the cultural influence of that deity?
- David Limbaugh – Conservatism’s Identity Crisis
[F]or Republicans, there’s a fierce intramural debate not just over how conservative the party should be but also over the very definition of conservatism.
Hey all, here’s to a wonderful year which will begin new and end well.
May your tomorrows be as safe as your yesterdays and as hopeful as your best days because you’re guided and guarded by the God who made them both and loves you the same through all of them.
While I enjoy reading each and every one of you on my blogroll, there are a few blogs which I’ve found myself clicking out of the feed reader to read the whole article or to follow the story in more depth. I love every one of you, but these are the real gems:
- DougRoss@Journal – A recent addition to my rolls, I click to his articles perhaps more often than any other. Using images and humor to tell his stories gives a real strength to his presentation.
- Dinesh D’Souza – Always a provocative and eye-opening read.
- 4Simpsons – Using words in his titles such as “oxymoronic” and “arrogant” (and in the same title, no less), Neil keeps hitting hard and often at social, political, and religious issues.
- Barb’s Blog – Always a return to common sense, and sometimes to Brainless Canelons, Barb’s love of life is always refreshing.
- Verum Serum – One of my favorite blog titles (“verum” means “truth”) contains deep articles with lots of research and depth. Even if he does support Fred…
- Wit or Wisdom – One of the first blogs I found who actually linked back to me. And yes, he supports Huckabee. But he’s still good.
- SolomonHezekiah – A recent arrival, Sol dispenses wisdom from across the pond tackling deep issues with a breadth of wisdom that could only come from a school teacher.
- Thinking Out Loud – “Commentaries from a female, conservative Christian worldview. Intermittent observations on human behavior and current events. Occasional bursts of personal tirades,confessions, and discoveries.” – What’s not to like?
Happy New Year!
