[Expletive Repeated]

Originally published at The New Nixon on March 24, 2008.

Our brother Hugh Hewitt invites a debate about Sen. Obama’s use of profanity in the abridged audio version of one of his books. Shows how much times have changed since 1973-74, when some people seemed honestly if naively surprised that people swore in the White House. I was struck by the senator’s Elmore Leonard-like flair for dialog as well as his earnest attempt to convince an African-American high school buddy that girls weren’t racist just because they wouldn’t go out with him.
