Come reason with me. I listen to radio talk shows when I get up every morning—I have to do something to stay awake—and the host of the program I listen to most frequently is a bizarre recombination of conservative and old-timey liberal whose most important stock in trade appears to be uncertainty.  There is a class of "thinkers" in American culture who apparently believe (thanks to an assumption on their part that the human mind is frail and helpless in the face of a fundamentally capricious and unknowable universe) that uncertainty is evidence of intellectual honesty.

But already I digress……Barack Obama grew up surrounded by old-time, CPA card-carrying communists. His maternal grandfather, Stanley Dunham, who filled most of the father-shaped space in his life, was a well-known communist activist, and Soviet operative, and so was his grandmother, Madelyn.
