The L.A. Times has a videotape of Barack Obama at a going-away party for Rashid Khalidi, a Palestinian spokesman/cheerleader for the PLO. The L.A. Times is refusing to release the tape on the grounds that the source's feelings might be hurt.
Well, I feel their pain. I've been captured on tape a few times myself, mostly at weddings. Usually a couple of hours into the reception. It's not a pretty picture. Somewhere out there there is photographic evidence of DIH doing her best Pee Wee Herman impression after a couple of toasts. Not pretty, people, not pretty at all.
As a matter of fact I'm sitting on some pretty, let's say, "interesting" video right now. We gave a Halloween party the other night. All the adults came in costume and the cheap wine was flowing freely. You think I couldn't put together a little expose? Think again.
No, I won't be posting any pics, unless someone makes it worth my while. But then again I'm not a major American newspaper whose reputation depends on the free distribution of information to a public who have the right to know everything about their candidates.
You have to wonder what the L.A. Times is hiding. What, did somebody have a terrible haircut? Maybe they turned on the karaoke machine? Did Barack get weepy, or just sloppy drunk? Did the party involve a bong, or jello shots, or Naked Twister?
The people have a right to know.
Contact the L.A. Times at
and demand that they release the video. Unedited.
DIH will feel so much better about that Pee Wee Herman thing if they do.
