Reverend Wright -- Yet Again
The moment anyone mentions Reverend Jeremiah Wright in this campaIgn he has lost all credibility with me, and I have no further interest in anything that person has to say. Republicans are trying to turn Reverend Wright into the Willie Horton of this campaign -- "the scary black man". Unfortunately, that doesn't work. The lifetime achievements of Reverend Wright are far different from those of Willie Horton. Most people who mention Reverend Wright in this campaign are raving right-wing lunatics or devious propagandists. To me, Reverend Wright has emerged as the real hero of this political season -- a badly wronged and misinterpreted minister of God who has, in words and deeds, truly spent a lifetime doing God's work on Earth. If people want to distort and misinterpret Reverend Wright for their own political purposes and economic greed, I have no use for those people. The guy who wrote this piece is a nut case. It's like debating someone who belongs in Creedmor.
