Why Won't Barack Obama Apologize For Nutbag Memphis Flyers? 

That's the actual headline of a post today on Wonkette.com, the famed Washington, D.C., political blog. But it turns out they're not really talking talking about us. They're talking about those nasty anti-semitic fliers (or flyers, if you prefer) distributed by a nutbag minister from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and aimed at Congressman Steve Cohen.

Wonkette goes on to riff on the fact that certain conservative bloggers have already begun to demand that Barack Obama denounce the flier or else appear to condone it.

In that vein, we demand that Barack Obama also apologize for Michael Jackson's plastic surgery, Mister T's haircut, and "The Jeffersons."
