I never thought I'd ever see video more damaging to Sen. Barack Obama's campaign than the first videos of Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ's sermons that emerged in mid-March. Then I saw these:
Roll up, roll up for the misery tour! That would be the upcoming media tour by the good Rev. Jeremiah Wright, which will no doubt be bringing misery upon Sen. Barack Obama's electability argument. Here's a list of some of Rev. Wright's "Greatest Hits" (w/ video excerpts):
"Israel (That Dirty Word Again!)" "America's Chickens....... are Coming Home..... to Roooooooost" "God Damn America!" "The Government LIIIIIIIIED about Pearl Harbor!" "The U.S. of KKK (A.)" "Hillary ain't never been called a n***!" "Fighting for Peace is like Raping for Virginity" "What We are Doing is the Same Thing Al Qaeda is Doing" "Monica (The Other White Meat)"
as a supporter of hillary i perfectly understand that she faces an insurmountable deficit in delegates, based on the rules, excluding florida and michigan...i got that.
i understand that given this lead the obama supporters would be livid if they did not prevail at the convention. given that obama is getting over 90% of the black vote, and given the iconic position he holds with black voters, the party poobahs would be loathe to antagonize a loyal group of mostly democratic voters for many years, black people. if not for blacks you could fold up the democratic party in some southern states and just close it down, its kind of sparse.
so, yes, the pressure to nominate obama is heavy, and has the advantage of some good common sense points in favor of that.
