Captain Obama forced to cut tow-rope to the good ship... "SS Jeremiah Wright"...

The presidential candidate is seeking to tamp down the growing fury over Rev. Jeremiah Wright and his incendiary remarks that threaten to envelope his campaign.

“I am outraged by the comments that were made and saddened by the spectacle that we saw yesterday,” Mr. Obama told reporters at a news conference.
I just wanna know... where was Captain Obama when the entire crew started screaming...

"I’m willing to cut presidential spouses a lot of slack. When Senator Obama said Jeremiah Wright was like a goofy uncle, it was pointed out that your relatives are a given but you get to choose your pastor."

"It’s true that you also get to choose your wife, but, unless you’re particularly far-sighted, you don’t always choose them with a presidential run in mind."
I guess "Slick Willie" kinda evens this one up anyway.


LAST WORD: Wheels within wheels
"Of course, Hillary could use Wright to sabotage Obama, and then - with the party roiling - set herself up as the candidate of “unity” by offering the badly injured Obama the veep spot. Which would be profoundly ironic - she’d have taken the party to the brink of destruction in order to steal the “unifier” tag from Obama."

"This is almost a thing of beauty in its perverse way - if it can be pulled off."

I commented that my better half came up with an interesting theory into this whole debacle...can we really put it past the good reverend to -- to bolster the black grievance cause -- do his damndest to tank Obama's chances, so he can come back at the end to say he was right all along; that America is inherently too racist to elect a black man?

I have to say...other than lead paint exposure or simple unwavering insanity, little else makes as much sense.

i'm thinkin' maybe we have to go with not too bright and uber-ly self-involved.

whatever it is, unless somebody has pictures of the reverend takin' a bag of cash from hillary... wright just tanked obama's chances of puttin' this thing away.
