David French Nails It at NRO

Great Piece - bold/italicized emphasis mine.  Spot on.

"Hovering over the feeding frenzy is the absurd media spectacle of mainstream reporters claiming they’re merely 'doing their job' by diving into 50-year-old details of Ben Carson’s childhood. The same reporters who were not just incurious about the details of Barack Obama’s background in 2008 but actively hostile to those who asked reasonable questions about his relationship with admitted domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and his years of religious instruction from Jeremiah 'God Damn America' Wright."

"At the end of the day, what are we left with? An admirable though imperfect man who rose from abject poverty to the pinnacle of one of the most challenging professions in the nation — all while never forgetting his roots, maintaining grace and humility even as he earned riches and honors. In fact, his life story — and his character — would make him one of the most inspiring Americans ever to occupy the Oval Office. But he’s a direct threat not just to leftist narratives regarding race and class but also to the leftist stranglehold on the black vote. And for that reason alone he must be destroyed."

"A 'high-tech lynching' is again underway, but if recent history is any guide, the Left’s attempt to strike down Carson will only make him stronger."

Aside from Carson's great life story, what I've enjoyed about his candidacy more than anything is the chance to throw the charge of racism at any white Leftist who criticizes him.  Its been delicious to give the American Left a taste of its own non-sensical medicine.
