Obama's Grandma ... Redux!

Powerline points out an interesting article. As we noted yesterday, Senator Obama tries to draw some convoluted comparison between the "Rev" Wright and his grandma ... she who told him as a child that she feared black men ... but as it turns out ... then again, maybe she didn't ...

Well, no, according to Obama's 1995 book, it is not at all true that she "once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street." Instead, she once confessed [to Obama's grandfather] her fear of one aggressive black beggar who didn't pass by her but instead confronted her, demanded money, and then gave her -- an intelligent, level-headed woman who had worked her way up to a mid-level corporate management position -- good reason to believe he would have violently mugged her if her bus hadn't pulled up."

Grandmother ... grandfather ... what's the difference? The truth is ... oh never mind.
