It's the thought that counts

So, a lot of people are noticing the pattern in Obama’s charitable giving.

Instapundit points to TaxProf

And away we go with a number of folks linking to TaxProf because, well, dangit because Instapundit told them to, that’s why.

Now, of course, this is news. And I, for one, would never discourage people from talking about what’s news.

I would encourage them, however, to keep up.

From the American Thinker, Charitable to Obama, from April 2007. My conclusion then:

It sounds like something for which Obama should be commended. He added personal giving to all of the other work that he does on behalf of charities. In addition, he has given speeches, made appearances, written books and has spoken a great deal on the campaign trail about the idea of service to the community.

Campaign trail? Wait. You don't think the increase in his charitable giving is related to his decision to run for president?

How much cynicism can one man create in the name of trying to end it?
