ABC NEWS 11-Apr-2007 "I understand MSNBC has suspended Mr. Imus," Obama told ABC News, "but I would also say that there's nobody on my staff who would still be working for me if they made a comment like that about anybody of any ethnic group. And I would hope that NBC ends up having that same attitude.

"What we've been seeing around this country is this constant ratcheting up of a coarsening of the culture that all of have to think about," Obama said.

[A]s a culture, we really have to do some soul-searching to think about what kind of toxic information are we feeding our kids," he concluded.

So, a talk radio host who is far from being ingrained in the Obama family, is not to be enabled, not to be 'fed' to his kids.

But a pastor preaching hate is exactly the kind of role model he believes his children should be exposed to?

Don Imus said what he said in a foolishly failed attempt at humor, and he paid the consequence. Can the same be said of Reverend Wright? Or of Sen. Obama, for naming him to his campaign of Hope, all the while knowing what hate the pastor spewed?
