Surprise, surprise, surprise!

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright couldn’t have done more damage to Barack Obama’s campaign if he had tried. And you have to wonder if that’s just what one friend of Wright wanted.

Shortly before he rose to deliver his rambling, angry, sarcastic remarks at the National Press Club Monday, Wright sat next to, and chatted with, Barbara Reynolds.

A former editorial board member at USA Today, she runs something called Reynolds News Services and teaches ministry at the Howard University School of Divinity. (She is an ordained minister).

It also turns out that Reynolds – introduced Monday as a member of the National Press Club “who organized” the event – is an enthusiastic Hillary Clinton supporter.

I was glad to see Obama get pissed:

    Ah yes, it was a conspiracy theory that put Rev. Wright on Bill Moyer and in front of the NAACP, and here’s this twenty-year old picture of a snickering Hillary as she introduces a young Obama to Rev. Wright.

    No single person at the National Press Club books their speakers, it’s done by a committee, and the Club has been trying to get Wright to speak at the Club for years. They were finally able to book him when he was already in town for a black miniters convention.

    Take the tinfoil hat off and come back to reality.

  • Oh goodness. Obama shot himself in the foot, and Pastor Wright is a trashy S. Sider. Everybody in Chicago knows that.

    Besides,

    When you campaign from the pulpit, you’re ASKING FOR TROUBLE!

  • @1: I’m not saying it’s a conspiracy. Just interesting. Clinton wants us to think it’s a vast right wing “conspiracy” to disparage Obama with Wright. The smart money knows otherwise. Probably has the likes of you Hill Shillers smiling with glee.

    Timing is indeed everything. 😉

  • @2: Unfortunately Lunch, when you have opponents floating bogus Muslim smears then following that up with bullshit “as far as I know” comments on national TeeVee your hand is pretty much forced to do shit like this. I don’t like either.

  • @1: I dunno Modern. Clinton supporter gets Wright on stage to make an ass out of himself and Obama by proxy (now that they’ve successfully tied the two at the hip with typical politics of association). Then a 527 with a bunch of Clintonites robocalls states with “Lamont Williams” trying to suppress the black vote?

    Sounds like a pattern to me!
