“If Barack gets past the primary, he might have to publicly distance himself from me,” Mr. Wright said with a shrug. “I said it to Barack personally, and he said yeah, that might have to happen.”

He had sampled various faiths but adopted none until he met Mr. Wright, a dynamic pastor who preached Afrocentric theology, dabbled in radical politics and delivered music-and-profanity-spiked sermons.
Just which other faiths did he sample?
Is Mr/ Obama going to tell us what other religions he dabbled in?
In the words of the Church Lady: Now whatever could it be...? Could it be.... ISLAM?

I have never known a mainstream candidate for President who found a messed up screwball fascinating.

“Mr. Obama, a Democratic presidential candidate who says he was only shielding his pastor from the spotlight”

Yeah, because the meek little pastor is scared of bright lights, big city

Obama is what passes for mainstream in today’s Democratic party, a Muslim/Nazi/poser who can’t speak a coherent sentence without a teleprompter, claims to be the first serious African American candidate even though he is AT LEAST fifty percent caucasian and some say only six and one quarter percent black who claims to be a Christian purely for political purposes. Try to imagine this clown running forty years ago. Back then Hubert Humphrey was considered an extreme leftist, today he would be far to the right of John McCain.
