And, for those who can't get enough, see Obama accuser has long rap sheet - Politico.com Plus over 392 comments to read! YIKES!!!

Talk Wisdom reports...you decide...

At the moment, the only "label" that fits this National Press Club event is "absolutely bizarre!"


HT's....on second thought...too exhausted to type them out!

Update @ 3:48 p.m. PT:

Citizen Wells has a transcript of Sinclair's Press Conference.

Also, from what I could gather from reading some comments, apparently Sinclair had his luggage stolen and he was arrested sometime after the conference!

The Blogosphere Goes Crazy Over LarryGate!

However...silence from the MSM?

I hear the crickets! chirp...chirp...chirp...

Greta explains why she won't interview Sinclair. [Note: tried to find it, but it must be somewhere in the three pages of comments.] Here is a brief excerpt from Tailrank:

Many of you email me asking why I don't interview Larry Sinclair….here is why (click on the link) click here… I assume you now know why I have not interviewed him and no one has…his 27 year criminal record and all sorts of other matters mentioned in the above link tell you why..in short, no credibility. I urge all of you to look to the issues…and not to the smears. While the internet is a great communication and educational tool, it is also viral when it comes to smearing people. There are good reasons to be skeptical of what politicians promise you.

I also read that his lawyer (disbarred) showed up wearing a kilt.

If anyone reading here has watched the entire video, please share your thoughts on what you think about Sinclair's accusations.

Also, Citizen Wells has a very interesting thread going at his blog. Additional, up-to-the-minute information is being shared by several commenters there.

What do you think about all of this?

I could not sleep last night. I found this whole thing so very disturbing!

Think back about allegations against George W. Bush before both the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections. In 2000, it was the revelation of a DUI. In 2004, it was the National Guard lies perpetrated by CBS (I think). The National Guard lie was all over the news! Yet, Sinclair's allegations are being hushed up. What gives?

If he's a loon - it will come out in the end. If he is telling the truth - then the public needs to know this before the election.

Perhaps he was arrested for his own protection while his allegations are being investigated?

Several comments at the link above tend to lead me to think that he was wisked away so that he would be silenced and not able to access his computer blog. He did say that he would make postings of the papers he had as evidence for his case.

Could the Chicago police be trying to cover up and squelch this information? We KNOW that the MSM certainly is!

This is highly disturbing to me!! Anyone else out there feel the same way?

Perhaps the investigation is going forward. When proof is found, then the media may share it. How could they keep it secret? It's already all over the blogs!

I found it quite interesting that TailRank included my post in their listings. At a quick glance, it appeared that all of the blog posts selected were either neutral (like mine) or already labeled Sinclair a liar and a loon.

When I did a google search last night, I could not find a blog or site that wasn't disparaging Sinclair or his allegations until page 33! (Again, I did a quick glancing over the pages - plus, things may have changed since last night.)

So, Talk Wisdom readers - have you viewed the video yet? What say you?
