The wheels on the bus go thump-thump-thump, thump-thump-thump
It's a dive. It's a set-up. It's a thrown fight.
Barack Obama needed to shed the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, completely, but he couldn't do it based on past statement (Obama had already taken his stand on those). So he needed Wright to be just a bit more outrageous. Just a bit more offensive. A bit more flamboyant in his criticism's of politics, politicians and America.
And Obama got what he wanted from Wright. A speech so distasteful to so many Americans (I can't include myself in that group - I enjoy Wright, and agree with most of what he says), that Obama could jettison him like yesterday's New York Post, and be done with him for good.
Now, who could challenge Obama about Wright. The deal is off. The relationship severed. The friendship abandoned.
It's a shame that politicians can't speak the truth in America. But whatever we have to do to get Obama elected...
Take that Rush Limbaugh. Hope you weren't betting on Sonny Liston, Hillary.
