Here it is, two days before the Democratic South Carolina primary, and the latest polling has Barack Obama holding an 11 point lead over Hillary Clinton. What can the Clintons do to change that and tilt things in their favor ? Hmmm. It wouldn't be to get a months old sex scandal they've been sitting on made public so close to the election that it can't be disproved, would it ? A guy named Larry Sinclair has made a YouTube video claiming he had gay oral sex and did cocaine with Barack Obama in 1999. Devastating to Obama if true, which is most likely isn't. Even if it isn't true, it's potentially devastating to Obama in South Carolina due to it's timing. This sure looks like a setup, a hit job on Obama. Sinclair even says he will take a polygraph test. I'll be real surprised if that ever happens.
This sex scandal may be breaking at the perfect time to derail Obama, but it appears that an awful lot of people have known about it for a long time, going back to last october at least. Blogger Ron Rosenbaum reports that the L.A. Times and and other DC media and insiders knew about an unspecified sex scandal on october 29, 2007. He says it was pretty common knowledge among the media, but they didn't know if they should run the story (if it was a Republican, the mainstream media would have run the story about two minutes after they got it, like they did with Republican Senator Larry Craig. The media only acquires "ethics" when a Democrat is involved. Not that there's a liberal media or anything). Columnist/reporter Robert Novak also talked about an unspecified Obama scandal that was given to him by Democratic sources from the Clinton campaign, from the same time period.
Since the mainstream media wasn't going to run the Larry Sinclair story, the internet media was used, in the form of YouTube. Sinclair is probably looking for his 15 minutes of fame, and probably a few bucks as well.
There may be those of you who think it was the Republicans who are behind this, but if it was the Republicans, wouldn't they have waited until the general election to release this bombshell ? I think the timing of this points directly to Team Clinton. Of course, I'm just speculating, and the Clintons will have deniability. They always do. If Hillary ends up blaming this on the "Republican machine" (her stock evasion), you'll know it was the Clintons behind this for sure.
