Defending Newt And D'Souza, Ctd

Larison bats clean-up:

If one insists on psychoanalyzing Obama instead of just looking at his actual policies and public statements, it would be a lot more productive to think about how Obama made himself into the accommodating, establishmentarian, conventional politician and monogamous family man he is as a complete repudiation of his father’s life and political failures. People who insist on trying to see Obama as a left-wing radical, closeted or otherwise, will simply be chasing after ghosts and making themselves look inexcusably foolish in the process.
