Reverend Wright: Round Deux

Obama Says He's Outraged By Former Pastor's Comments
Democrat Barack Obama said Tuesday he was outraged by the latest assertion by his former pastor that criticism of his fiery sermons is an attack on the black church. [...]

"I gave him the benefit of the doubt in my speech in Philadelphia explaining that he's done enormous good. ... But when he states and then amplifies such ridiculous propositions as the U.S. government somehow being involved in AIDS. ... There are no excuses. They offended me. They rightly offend all Americans and they should be denounced."
Is it just me or does the Rev. Wright suddenly sound meaner and more strident this time around? Don't be fooled by this political theater. It's a ploy to allow Obama a "do over" in dealing with the controversy. I mean come on, after spending 20 years in Trinity's pews and his half-hearted response to the initial brouhaha, no one believes Obama doesn't agree with what that church teaches. So they're just replaying the whole issue again so Obama and all of his supporters can act righteously outraged and look like they've rebuked the good reverend.

UPDATE: Obama Campaign announces: A 'big press conference' on Wright (aka the climax in our little vignette's plot...) Watch out grandma, you're about to have some company under the bus.

Amy Holmes at NRO was more prescient than I
