The Wright Stuff

Remember the Rev. Jeremiah Wright? He was the pastor of Barack Obama's adopted Chicago church and was cited by Obama as one of his spiritual leaders. He's also a fantastically entertaining comedian who ruined his relationship with our president by repeatedly making an ass of himself in front of a camera. Implying that the U.S. was just asking for 9/11 because "God damn America"? Check. Justifying this claim by saying "it's in the Bible"? Check. Pointing out the differences in the way white and black people clap? Check. Doing so in song form? Check! And now, Rev. Wright tells DailyPress.com that he doesn't think Obama will talk to him again until after he's out of the White House. The reason? "Them Jews aren't going to let him talk to me." Oh, Jeremiah. Is there anything you won't do for a laugh? More details here.
