Jane Hamsher, writing on the blog, firedoglake.com, has stirred up
a petition and petitioners to attempt to stop Larry Sinclair’s
news conference on Wednesday, June 18, 2008. Visit firedoglake.com,
read Jane Hamsher’s articles. She and the blog are openly pro
Obama. This is indicative of the Obama Campaign. Accuse everyone
else of what you are doing. Jane Hamsher and firedoglake.com
are smearing Larry Sinclair and anyone asking questions about Obama.
Diversions.

Larry Sinclair alleges that he and Obama used drugs and had gay
sex on two occasions in November 1999. I have followed the Sinclair
story for months and Sinclair gains credibility each day as
Obama’s credibility plummets. Sinclair has been telling his story
on the internet since January 2008. Many people have examined
Sinclair’s allegations and they are believable in the context of
Obama’s life and past associations.

If Sinclair’s allegations are false, why have so many, including
the Obama Campaign, spent so much time and money attempting to
discredit him.

Now for common sense reality checks:

Is Larry Sinclair supporting a candidate? No

Is Jane Hamsher supporting a candidate? Yes

Is Larry Sinclair making money off of his blog? No
(He has had well over a million views)

Is firedoglake.com/Jane Hamsher making money off of their blog? Yes

Does Larry Sinclair have a right to tell his story? Yes

Does Jane Hamsher have a right to block Larry Sinclair? No

Here are some exerpts from Jane Hamsher articles on firedoglake.com:

“Larry Sinclair at the Press Club: Save Us From the Freakshow
By: Jane Hamsher Friday June 13, 2008 12:00 pm”
“Please, by all that is holy, save us from the next election being dominated by the freak show.”

“Do Not Feed the Troll: Tell The National Press Club Not To Host Larry Sinclair
By: Jane Hamsher Thursday June 12, 2008 11:58 am”

“Larry Sinclair is one of the most outrageous anti-Obama smear merchants. So why is the National Press Club hosting him this coming Wednesday? Apparently Jeff Gannon wasn’t available.”

The next quote is a lie:

“Larry Sinclair has accused Obama of murdering his pastor.”

Sinclair never said that!

Hypocrisy and lies. The cornerstone of the Obama Campaign.
