If you enjoyed a blissfully politics-free day Sunday, you missed Newark Mayor Cory Booker call Team Obama’s attacks on Bain Capital and private equity firms “crap.”  The rare moment of honesty from an Obama surrogate won points with many on the Right and attracted bile from the Left.

With the onslaught of hate and demands that he get back to toeing the line, Booker quickly recorded a YouTube video clarifying his statements.  RNC staffer Tim Miller called it a “hostage tape.”

And it wasn’t enough for the Obama campaign whose editors sliced and diced nearly four minutes into a 30 second endorsement.

This morning, the “hostage tape” comparison was used again on “Morning Joe” and National Review‘s Jim Geraghty is running with that ever so apt description in a brilliant series of tweets using the hashtag #FreeCoryBooker.

    Could there be a better example of just how insidious and powerful the Obamists really are? They’re like radical Islamists but without the subtlety or charm.

    when the White House pressure came into play Corey Booker has booked plain and simple. So much for his backbone.
