Outraged! Shocked! Chagrined!

From BreitBart:

Barack Obama has called an emergency press conference in an effort to clean up this whole Jeremiah Wright mess.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) – Democrat Barack Obama said Tuesday he was outraged and appalled by the latest comments from his former pastor, who asserted that criticism of his fiery sermons is an attack on the black church and the U.S. government was responsible for the creation of the AIDS virus.

I wonder if this outrage has anything to do with the way Hillary Clinton is rising in the polls and threatening to erase the lead Obama gained in the months prior to the whole Wright scandal.


“This is not an attack on Jeremiah Wright,” Wright told the Washington media Monday. “It has nothing to do with Senator Obama. It is an attack on the black church launched by people who know nothing about the African-American religious tradition.”

Obama told reporters Tuesday that Wright’s comments do not accurately portray the perspective of the black church.

How Obama separates the churches members from their leader, I have no idea.

If my church’s pastor (AKA “Daddy-o”) got up and proclaimed that African-Americans in the U.S. government created a sexually-transmitted disease in an attempt to wipe out every caucasian on the continent, and then followed it up by swearing in the pulpit whilst ranting and raving against America, I have a feeling that not only would we lose our African-American members, but also the vast majority of our white membership.

And, Barry…if Wright’s views don’t reflect those of the church (or vice versa), then why do they applaud wildly in the video documenting his attacks against the United States?

Lastly, are you really expecting us to believe that you had NO IDEA that Jeremiah Wright was such a radically-minded speaker during all of the years that you attended his church? Wright reportedly has a long and storied history of radicalism and hatred.

Man, I hate politics.

    Note to self: don’t take sleeping pills while sitting in church, just in case your pastor magically morphs into an evil tirading hate monger and slurs an entire race of mankind, and you somehow miss that part and keep attending.

    Ahh, another important lesson learned.

    note to self: I am a victim. I am a victim. I am a victim. If I succeed, I’m heroic because I did it in spite of being victimized. If I fail, that’s okay too, because after all… I am victim.
