After reading this week's column, which is called "Obama's Truthiness about Farrakhan," a reader wrote in to say it was time I unmasked myself. The reader put it this way:
"Please be honest that you are a supporter of Senator Clinton."
That's a hot one. But it's not simply ridiculous as anyone the slightest bit familiar with my life's Clinton-bashing knows. It also suggests that, in such a reader's eyes, any critique of Sen. Obama's revealing and disturbing inability to reject Farrakhan, lock, stock and barrel, can only constitute partisan Hillary boosterism--rather than (urgently needed) analysis and discussion of the views of the Democratic frontrunner.
