What we know: Barack Obama is willing to throw the Reverend Jeremiah Wright under the bus after the latter proved to be not only a political liability, but a persistent distractor whose inconvenient utterances threaten to derail the Change Train.
What we don’t know: Whether, having won the hearts of the ink-stained wretches in the MSM with his like, totally epochal speech on race last month – but having failed to win the hearts of bitter, God-’n-gun clinging Pennsylvania trailer trash haters earlier this month – the Chicago politician engineered the latest Wright-down in order to create his own “Sistah Souljah” moment.
What we have to consider before leaping to a conclusion: How Wright’s moderately sensible interview on the nuances of his faith journey with Bill “Utterly banish all of this verklempt God talk from the public square” Moyers last week fits in with the aforementioned manufactory.
Unless: That was all a part of the plan to make the Sistah Souljah moment seem plausible.
In which case: Obama is an inordinately clever beast, Columbia and Harvard degrees notwithstanding.
Or else: Lex needs to ease a few turns off the tinfoil hat winch.
Which, by the way: Check out the circular firing squad (and ritual denunciations) going on with the “Wedding Tackle = Identity, like forever” crowd.
It is to laugh.
