Barack's Dreams

An incredible analysis at American Thinker of Barack as a writer. How is it possible that a book as monumentally powerful as Dream From My Father came from a guy for whom no other writing samples of similar prowess exist - including his own The Audacity of Hope?
The public is asked to believe Obama wrote Dreams From My Father on his own, almost as though he were some sort of literary idiot savant... In my career in advertising and publishing, I have reviewed the portfolios of a thousand professional writers, all of them crowded with writing samples, but only a handful of these writers would have been capable of having a written a book as stylish as Dreams.
Hardly any other writing samples from Barack are available for public consumption, a pretty remarkable achievement for a guy who was head of the Harvard Law Review.
Obama contributed not one signed word to the HLR or any other law journal. As Matthew Franck has pointed out in National Review Online, "A search of the HeinOnline database of law journals turns up exactly nothing credited to Obama in any law review anywhere at any time."
Jack Cashill has a theory, though, about how the remarkable Dreams came to be. Read it here.
