So the Rev. Al Sharpton thinks that we should ignore Barack Obama's relationship to his pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, for the same reason that we should ignore Mitt Romney's belonging to the LDS Church. Incomparable. For one thing, the LDS Church isn't calling for anarchy, isn't trying to set blacks against whites, isn't proclaiming that 9/11 was God's way of getting even with the (bleep) United States.

Unfortunately, Mr. Obama, you "marry" those you date.
