Why we must "Wright" off Obama

Sen. Barack Obama's Reverend Jeremiah Wright problem is just the beginning of his would-be November defeat. The right-wing 527's will morph Sen. Obama into Louis Farrakhan by the time the general election rolls around. As much as the MSM (and shameless Obama-shilling sites like Kos & HuffPo) try to play down the story, this one will linger.
Many Americans have never heard such vile things said about their country, let alone from the father-figure and spiritual adviser to a leading Presidential candidate. Besides that, word came out today that Obama's financial ties to Tony Rezko are much closer than he previously declared. What else will come out of Rezko's trial? What will the 527's uncover about Obama's admittedly (sometimes) seedy youthful endeavors? How many more times will Michelle Obama put her foot in her mouth?
Sen. Obama has already "bamboozled" us about his Rezko ties and is now trying to "hoodwink" us by saying he wasn't aware of his pastor's frequent hate-filled rhetoric. Uhhh, didn't he sit in the Reverend's pews every Sunday on & off for the past 20 years? Was he in the bathroom every time the Reverend spewed something detestable about our great country? Or did he doze off during those screeching sermons about the "U-S of KKK"? How else would he not hear those sermons? I'm telling you it would be a huge mistake for the Democratic party to fall for Sen. Obama's "okey-doke" and nominate him. If the super delegates give him the nomination in Denver, we are talking McGovern/Mondale style defeat in the fall here.....
As you can probably tell by now, I support Sen. Hillary Clinton, and am not a fan of Barack Obama. Him and his overzealous, zombie-like supporters have soured me & many others to his candidacy. The Obamabots are as bad as the Ron Paulians, except that there's more of them and they're everywhere. They have eye-rollingly and undeservedly deified this man. They're rabid, pigheaded, pushy and annoying. Worst of all they roll out the old 1990's Rush Limbaugh/right-wing talking points to tear down Hillary, who is an excellent general election candidate, even more so after today.
Even putting aside the recent Rev. Wright bombshell, does anyone really think that Sen. Obama's coalition of African-Americans, hipsters, college students and wealthy liberals with white guilt is enough to push him over the edge against Sen. McCain? I know I don't. So far he has been unable to draw working-class whites, hispanics, asians, baby boom women, jews, gays, seniors and low-income voters, all of whom make up a majority of the Democratic base. That is why he is losing the big states despite out spending Hillary nearly 3 to 1, and why he'll likely lose OH, PA, MO, NH, FL, NJ and the overall general election this November if the party is foolish enough to nominate him.
The good news is, folks, that it's not too late to go with the vetted, experienced and safer candidate; Sen. Hillary Clinton. Sure, if Obama has even one more pledged delegate than her, his zombies will cry that the election was stolen and Denver may burn. A number of them are already planning to recreate the 1968 Chicago convention if the super delegates go with Hillary. Don't believe me? Check out their web site, it's recreate68.org
But this near-certain anarchy is a risk we must take. If you are on the fence or currently lean towards Sen. Obama and live in any of the remaining primary states, please reconsider. Weigh all the risks and consequences and do the right thing by pulling that lever for Hillary Clinton.
For the rest of us, we can do our part by opening our wallets and spreading the good word for our gal. We need to get Hillary close enough in the delegate count and popular vote so that the super delegates won't be so pressured to go with the now-fatally flawed candidacy of the first-term Senator from Illinois. To have the best shot at winning in November, we must "Wright" off Barack Obama.
(I know, the puns are corny, but I couldn't resist!)
