It will come as no surprise to those of you who have paid attention, but conservative blogger and third-tier right wing radio host Hugh Hewitt is a hypocrite. For the last year and a half Hewitt pushed the candidacy of Mitt Romney, the guy who is supposedly a financial wizard that ended up spending $1.1 million for each delegate he earned in his ultimately fruitless run for the presidency. A core part of Hewitt's flackery was that questions about religion were beyond the pale. Any sort of inquiry into a church's unorthodox practices was decried as religious bigotry by Hewitt. Simply asking if Romney believed that Jesus would come to America - an element of Mormon theology - was just liberal bias.
Of course in the case of the media hyping the words of Senator Obama's former pastor - words Sen. Obama has rejected, denounced, and disavowed - Hewitt unsurprisingly has a whole new position:
