The Swift-Boating Begins

A mash-up video conflating Obama with the most radical and inflammatory of black radicals and separatists is now being linked by Powerline and Hewitt. No big surprise who is behind it:

Rather the incendiary video -- which also includes footage of Malcolm X, the U.S. Olympians who raised their hand in the black power salute and the song "Fight the Power" -- is in part the amateur work of Lee Habeeb.

A co-founder and former producer of the Laura Ingraham Show, Habeeb is the director of strategic content at Salem Radio Network, the conservative talk radio powerhouse that airs programs hosted by figures such as Bill Bennett and Hugh Hewitt.
