A few more words about the Rev. Wright 

Yeah, Barack Obama is apparently the only person in America who has a crazy preacher.

(Of course, if you take his words in context, I don't think he's that crazy. Certainly not as mind-blowingly stupid and disgusting as Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, John Hagee and any number of other conservative favorites.)

Anyway, if you're interested in a perspective that's a little different from those out-of-context clips provided - over and over - by the so-called liberal media, read this.

(Understandably, there are many people in this country with a vested interest in saying "liberal media" repeatedly. Imagine, if you actually watched this so-called "liberal media," like I do, you might come to a different conclusion. But the people who like to say "liberal media" over and over don't seem to be interested in the opinions of people who think for themselves.)

(By the way, remember that Mike Huckabee guy? He's an actual pastor, not just the pastor to a candidate, and he was the front-runner for the Republican nomination in the early days of the primary season. And I'm trying to remember ... how many of his sermons were excerpted in the so-called liberal media? Well, it must be because he never said anything crazy or threatening.)
