That was a good line.
“I was astounded, shocked and disgusted by the comments and beliefs of Reverend Wright, and, given the applause and cheers, he mirrored the beliefs of most in his congregation.”

Why do we have to go to the movies to see the Joker, when we’ve got Wright and Pfleger?

The writer’s epiphany is nice and all that (which is personal to him and anybody who happens to have seen the same light); but I’ve got a couple of other biggies that I find serendipidous about Baraq’s candidacy. 1) Who else could have unhorsed the hildebeeste?

Well, Carter never acted like anything but a gentle, humble, Sunday school-teaching, nuclear submarine-running southerner UNTIL he began trying to give away the Panama Canal. It was only AFTER he left office that he showed his true America-hating colors.
Baraq shows them every time he makes a speech: “This is a great country, BUT...;” “I believe in capitalism, BUT...” “America USED to be admired in the world, BUT...”
All you’ve got to do is line up a litany of soundbites of him and Michelle dissing this country, and he will lose, big.
I’ve bet $1000 on it at +180 (i.e., WHEN McCain wins, I’ll be paid my $1000 back, plus $1800 more).
