1. United Church of Christ condemns the latest Obama smear email. (They just keep comin’!)

2. Went to an Obama rally at a local high school last night, and as Jeff Zeleny reporters here he was unusually sharp (and also pretty funny) in criticizing his opponents. This part was cracked the crowd up:

“Because I’m like, an ordinary person, I thought that they meant what’s your biggest weakness?” Mr. Obama said. “So I said, ‘Well, I don’t handle paper that well. You know, my desk is a mess. I need somebody to help me file and stuff all the time.’ So the other two they say uh, they say well my biggest weakness is ‘I’m just too passionate about helping poor people. I am just too impatient to bring about change in America.”

As the room erupts in laughter, he continues: “If I had gone last I would have known what the game was. I could have said, ‘Well you know, I like to help old ladies across the street. Sometimes they don’t want to be helped. It’s terrible.’”
