Obama disowns Wright

Here’s the AP story. No word at this hour on Obama’s grandmother.

UPDATE: I wasn’t the only one this occurred to.


“I have been a member of Trinity United Church of Christ since 1992, and have known Reverend Wright for 20 years,” Obama said. “The person I saw yesterday was not the person that I met 20 years ago.”

Oh, come on! You expect us to believe that Wright had a big change in character, and it just so happened to occur exactly when people started paying attention to him? Sheesh.


“And what I think particularly angered me was his suggestion somehow that my previous denunciation of his remarks were somehow political posturing. Anybody who knows me and anybody who knows what I’m about knows that I am about trying to bridge gaps and I see the commonality in all people,” [Obama said.]

In all the stuff Wright said (e.g., the United States created HIV to commit genocide against minorities), the thing that particularly angered Obama was that Wright called him a politician. (Via the Corner.)

STILL ANOTHER UPDATE: Wright agrees with me.  (There’s a sentence I never I thought I’d use!)  (Via the Corner.)

He sounds bitter.  Maybe that explains his antipathy toward people who aren’t like him.
