"I'm seeing right-wing talk show hosts defend Barack Obama, myself included," Mike Gallagher said on the Mike Gallagher Show this morning, and sure enough, an hour or two later I heard Rush Limbaugh express his shock and horror that the Clintons would attack an African-American candidate.

Galllagher played large sections of Obama's interview with Beliefnet, in which Obama discussed his relationship with his Chicago church and the smears directed at his religion.
