ABC NEWS: Obama’s Pastor: God Damn America, U.S. to Blame for 9/11. “Sen. Barack Obama’s pastor says blacks should not sing ‘God Bless America’ but ‘God damn America.'” Suddenly, this stuff — which has been around the blogosphere for a while — has big-media legs.

UPDATE: Via Katie Granju, a PDF scan of the National Enquirer article on Obama. As I mentioned before, there’s nothing as explosive as the above in the Enquirer piece, but a lot of people will see the sensational cover. I suspect the hand of Clinton-pal Ron Burkle behind the Enquirer coverage, but that doesn’t account for the ABC story.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Roger Simon thinks Barack has some explaining to do. “As we all know, we don’t choose our family, but Obama chose this racist demagogue as his pastor for decades. It’s not funny.”

MORE: Still more here.

AND MORE: Another observation from a reader: “Obama’s people are calling Ferraro racist, but he’s listening to this stuff in church?”
