By Patrick J. Buchanan Barack Obama just had the worst week since his beloved pastor, Jeremiah Wright, decided to expatiate on black liberation theology at the National Press Club.

By Patrick Buchanan “Will race be an issue in this campaign?” Hearing the cable talk-show host solemnly pose the question, I could not suppress a belly laugh.
