My story about Doug Gross finally finding a gubernatorial candidate pushed my piece on Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s visit to Iowa back a day. This would have been up sooner but I couldn’t get on the site, so I just bellied up to the bar at Al’s Whisper’s Saloon and got my morning off to a great start.
Rev. Wright said that President Obama made mistakes on his campaign, but he still loves him “like my child.” I wonder what mistake Rev. Wright is referring to. Could it be Obama’s denouncing of Wright after his hate filled sermons made their way through the media?
It’s all good it seems; Wright is confident that his prodigal son Obama will find his way home.
I have to say I was disgusted by the Des Moines Register’s story on his visit. I mean this is the news paper that continues to rip conservatives for anything they have said in the past, but overlooks controversial things Tom Harkin or someone like Rev. Wright say. I guess since Wright didn’t use his speaking gig in Iowa to shout “God Damn America,” all is right with Wright and so the Register believes he’s no different than the preacher at your own church.
Here is what some people had to say about Wright’s “inclusive’ speech in Ames this weekend.
Terry Wehrman said, “I came away extremely impressed.”
Really? I don’t know how you could even take this guy seriously after listening to some of the things he has said.
Jill Flyr said the following about Wright’s recognition the events honorees. “They are prophets, and they have made a tremendous difference for the lives of the people in Postville.”
Maybe Terry and Jill need a reminder about who Rev. Wright is…
Does that sound “inclusive” to you? Didn’t think so.
I wonder if Terry and Jill would invite someone like Scott Peterson over for dinner. I mean if we disregard what people have done or said in the past why not?
