The Ghost Writer


If Obama were white, then I'm sure he'd be praised for not knowing what's in his own book, five days after it was published.

I wouldn't blame him, though. If he's like everyone else in Washington — regardless of race, party or ethnic background — he hired someone else to write it for him.

That's news to me. From James Merriner:

In an interview last winter, Obama told me he was busy writing a then-untitled book about national issues. "One of the things about having written this first one is, the threshold is a little higher. People know what my voice sounds like. I can't fake it with a ghostwriter," he said.

You, sir, are no longer my hero.
