Jack Cashill over at American Thinker points out some anomalies in the letter allegedly sent by Obama to ex-girlfriend Alexandra (Alex) McNear in the early 1980s. The letter was excerpted in Vanity Fair on May 2 as part of a media blitz for David Maraniss’ forthcoming biography Barack Obama: The Story. Cashill points out the oddity that an article Obama penned at about the same time in Columbia’s Sundial, shows an individual that has great difficulty with writing, unable to attain even proper subject-verb agreement. Whereas, within the letter to McNear, Obama pulls off not only a stunning literary analysis of T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land, but the prose is absolutely flawless.
Obama Files looks at this anomaly and takes the analysis further in this video.
