From campaign manager David Plouffe's e-mail to Barack Obama supporters:
Rudy Giuliani and Sarah Palin specifically mocked Barack's experience as a community organizer on the South Side of Chicago more than two decades ago, where he worked with people who had lost jobs and been left behind when the local steel plants closed.Indeed. Giuliani:
On the other hand, you have a resume from a gifted man with an Ivy League education. He worked as a community organizer. What?And Palin:
I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a "community organizer," except that you have actual responsibilities.Community organizer. Ha ha.
Has it occurred to these people that Jesus (among others) might be described as a community organizer — and one who worked among the poor?
[No, I'm not comparing Barack Obama to Jesus. I'm only pointing out the absurdity of last night's ridicule.]
