Obama a member of the “New Party”? A radical-left wing political party?

The Mud Pit shares today that Sen. Barack Obama was once a member of the “New Party”. According to the American Thinker Blog:

The New Party was a radical left organization, established in 1992, to amalgamate far left groups and push the United States into socialism by forcing the Democratic Party to the left. It was an attempt to regroup the forces on the left in a new strategy to take power, burrowing from within. The party only lasted until 1998, when its strategy of “fusion” failed to withstand a Supreme Court ruling, but after, but the membership, including Barack Obama, continued to move the Democrats leftward with spectacular success.

Just when I get depressed about McCain being at the top of the GOP ticket, there is something worse to see in Barack Obama.

Forget holding your nose this Nov. 4…bring a gas mask.
