Reverend Wrong

You would think that the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, former pastor of Barack Obama's church, would be buoyed up, proud, downright hallelujah happy that a member of his flock was making history..... very close to being the Democratic nominee for President of the United States.

Think of the good Obama could do for the African-American community, the inspiring example he would set for young people, the positive winds of change he could champion with his presidency.

But no, the Rev. Wright not only doesn't help Obama, he seems determined to grab the public megaphone to loudly broadcast his strident and divisive opinions, enabling Obama's detractors to paint Obama into a campaign-shredding by-association corner. (WaPo)

Once again, the African-American community is not well-served by a leader. If Obama succeeds, it'll be no thanks to his former pastor. It'll be because voters see the self-serving and destructive egos lined up against Obama.... Wright, Billary, the "Limbaughs" everywhere.... for what they are. Spoilers.

The Rev. Wright says he wants to bring people together. Looks like the only way he could accomplish that would be to get out of Obama's way!
