McClurkin is “Just a Supporter” like I’m Walter Cronkite

One argument that I’ve heard repeated ad nauseam for the past few days is that Gospel singer Donnie McClurkin is nothing more than one of Senator Obama’s supporters.

Inland says it here:

 

Last I knew, a president needed half the country. (1+ / 0-)
Anyone that thinks that they are going to love all the supporters of the democratic candidate…..well, it’s not that small a country.

I have no trouble with that comment on its own merits, but the fact of the matter is that Mr. McClurkin is more than just a supporter.

He has been tasked to headline what is apparently a major official fundraiser and concert for the Obama campaign. It seems to me quite obvious that the good Senator should stand behind the people he puts on stage. Indeed, that’s the purpose of having a stage in the first place.

And what does Mr. McClurkin think of gay people? We’re like liars! (h/t Keith Boykin via Pam’s House Blend

There are certain things like, you know, anybody who has a lying problem; they get to the point where they hate being so, having such a lack of character that they make a change.

When Rush Limbaugh says outrageous and hateful things on the air, we go after the people who keep him on the air. The same standard–indeed, a higher standard–must apply to Barack Obama, who is running for the highest office in the land.

    It is all part of the primary madness.

    Obama’s campaign has failed him every step of the way.

    It is amazing that Obama’s supporters do not call for Axelrod’s head.

    He has run the worst campaign I have ever seen.
