WATCHOUT GRANDMA:

Obama denounces Rev. Wright's latest comments (Johanna Neuman, 4/29/08, Los Angeles Times)

Democrat Barack Obama today denounced his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, saying that the fiery minister's "ridiculous propositions" that the United States spread AIDS in the black community and invited the 9/11 terrorist attacks contradicted "everything that I'm about and who I am."

Gee, just last month these were the sorts of things someone in each of our families supposedly said and now they're suddenly beyond the Pale? Could Captain Hope be any more cynical than to pull this 180 just because he's losing now?

What more could Obama say? He can't unring a 20-year bell, and he couldn't wait any longer, not with even McCain talking about Wright.

Obama is still the darling of the hard Left, but Wright doesn't matter to them. They don't care about church. The black vote may slip away a bit, because Wright's pulpit theater is obviously not representative of the whole black church experience, no matter his protests.

I have to chuckle at the characterization of Wright as "fiery". He seems more like a stereotype every time he speaks, not really fiery but just braying.
