Obama's Jedi Mind Tricks

Democrats are in such a teenybopper swoon over Barack Obama (unless you are Jewish, Hispanic or a poor, bitter, God-fearing, gun-toting Pennsylvanian) that they haven't noticed how little they know about this guy.

John Fund observes that Democrats have a habit of falling love on the first date, as far as presidential nominees are concerned, in "Obama's Flaws Multiply" (Wall Street Journal, April 15, 2008).

It is reasonable to expect that there is more in his past (or yet to come out of his mouth) that will make the November election more difficult than it needs to be for the Democrats. And now this! Apparently Obama has been using Jedi mind tricks to influence primary voters and the press. Watch Obama, Jedi Master. Pictures don't lie!
But judging by Wednesday night's debate in Pennsylvania, those tricks may be failing him now. Read David Brooks' column today.
