When your citizen “town hall” is invitation-only and jointly co-produced by CNN and the Obama White House, every participant is a potted plant.
As I reminded you in my syndicated column before tonight’s Kabuki town hall on guns, both Obama and CNN have a long history as manufactured-narrative gardeners.
Right on cue, or rather left on cue, one of the chosen people allowed to question Obama was radical, race-baiting nutball Catholic priest Fr. Michael Pfleger from Obama’s Chicago.
Yep, it’s that Fr. Pfleger, whose antics I’ve chronicled here for years.
(P.S. What’s up with Pfleger’s blaccent? Did he take lessons from Hillary or Iggy Azalea?)

Which is worse–that the Obama White House invited their favorite, race-hustling reverend to preach about gun control or that the tools at CNN pretended he was a mainstream, credible voice worthy of a platform?
