The left is outraged with the return of Reverend Wright, charging team McCain with a desperation play (through a 527). I agree--the ad was a mistake. Who hasn't seen these lunatic rants by now, and more than once? What people haven't seen very much is Wright's explanation of why Obama stuffed him up under the bus after 20 faithful years:
"He does what politicians do". Translation: Wright thinks the disavowal was pure politics, which suggests he believes Obama's still down with the message but had to lie to the white folks to win. In a sane world that might shine light on Obama's other disassociations but in this one it comes off as racism.
