First, Wright goes on Bill Moyers' show last week and tells us all that Obama's act of distancing himself from the controversy surrounding Wright is nothing more than an act of political convenience. Said Wright, "(W)hat happened in Philadelphia where he had to respond to the sound bites, he responded as a politician. But he did not disown me because I’m a pastor."
Now, he's fully embracing his role as the newest race-baiting media whore, telling the National Press Club today that all of this hubbub about his racist rantings and blaming whites for making AIDS are nothing short of an "attack on the black church." Today, we got gems like "When Louis Farrakhan speaks, it's like when E.F. Hutton speaks...Black America listens," and "Louis Farrakhan is not my enemy."
Excellent. That sound you keep hearing in the background are those white voters in swing states heading to the exits. Keep talkin', crazy man. Keep defending your racist schtick and Louis Farrakhan. Keep winking at the crowds and suggesting that Barack Obama's only doing what he has to do to get elected.
