For 20 years, Barack Obama stood in the pews of the church where Jeremiah Wright preached his hatred of white people, Italians, Jews, and of America. For 20 years, Barack Obama appears to have had no problem with Wright's bigotry. Even when clips of Wright's sermons appeared on the MSM and on the internet, Obama said that he would stand by Wright. Now, however, as his polls continue to slide and it is becoming more obvious that Obama is being hurt by the good Reverend, Obama decided to become "outraged" and distance himself from Wright.
For everyone with a brain, this is pure politics, and comes too little, too late.
Obama Calls Wright's Remarks `Ridiculous,' Offensive
April 29 (Bloomberg) -- Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama denounced ``ridiculous'' statements made by the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, using his strongest language to date to distance himself from his former pastor.
Obama cited Wright's contentions, repeated yesterday, that the government may have had a role in spreading AIDS in the black community, that U.S. actions overseas were partly to blame for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, and about the importance of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
Wright's statements ``offend me, they rightly offend all Americans and they should be denounced and that's what I'm doing very clearly and unequivocally today,'' Obama said in a news conference in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
Wright's statements and past sermons have presented an obstacle for Obama as he tries to win over working-class white voters in the remaining Democratic primaries. Recorded snippets from some of Wright's sermons already have been used by Republicans in North Carolina against local Democrats. Obama and his rival, New York Senator Hillary Clinton, face their next test May 6 in contests in Indiana and North Carolina.
So, Wright said before that the government spread AIDS to kill black people. Now Obama is "outraged"?
Wright said before that 9/11 was deserved for the US "terrorizing" the world. Now Obama is "outraged"?
Wright made ridiculous comments before about black education and white people before, yet now Obama is "outraged"?
This is worse than anything any politician could have done. And it looking more and more true that Barack Obama is nothing more than an empty suit, whose toleration of bigoted statements, terrorist buddies, and crooked friends make him unfit to be President of the United States.

The good news just keeps on coming, as The New York Times saw a massive drop in weekly and weekend circulation numbers - down 9% for its Sunday edition.
Of course, this downturn is industry-wide (except The Wall Street Journal, which saw an increase in circulation), but for The Times, it means one thing:
If you continue to push the anti-American, anti-Semitic and liberal line, no one will want to read your crap.
New FAS-FAX: Steep Decline at 'NYT' While 'WSJ' Gains
Print circulation continues on its steep downward slide, the Audit Bureau of Circulations revealed this morning in releasing the latest numbers for some of the country's largest dailies in the six-month period ending March 31, 2008. When a full analysis appears it is expected to find, according to sources, the biggest dip yet, about 3.5% daily and 4.5 for Sunday.
The following circulation compares the new data to the same period a year ago. Daily circulation is the Monday-through-Friday average.
-- The New York Times lost more than 150,000 copies on Sunday. Circulation on that day fell a whopping 9.2% to 1,476,400. The paper's daily circulation declined 3.8% to 1,077,256.
According to New York Times spokeswoman Diane McNulty, the company had budgeted for the declines in Sunday and daily circulation. Two-thirds of the Sunday loss stemmed from the elimination of bonus days and third-party bulk copies. Also: the paper had a single copy and home delivery price increase in July. The paper also focused on growing "highly profitable circulation," she noted.
Note from The Times: We budgeted for this! We know it is bad, but who cares! Time to party!
Not really, liberals. It will be time to party when The New York Times goes completely bankrupt, which it already is.

Jeremiah Wright is making the rounds, tonight and tomorrow, speaking about how he he is being marked as a bad person for making insulting remarks about his country and other people.
I, for one, am tired of hearing about "The Reverend Wright."
He is a racist, bigoted, anti-Semitic American-hater. Period. End of argument. I do not want to hear that "his statements are taken out of context" - because no one who has made a bigoted remark uses this as an excuse.
Remember Jimmy "The Greek" and his "black athletes" comments some 20 years ago? It was part of a larger argument about blacks in sports, but the Greek made a RACIST COMMENT and that was the end of him.
Remember Trent Lott and his "Strom Thurmond should have been elected President in 1948" comment? He was trying to make an old man feel good after a lifetime of service to his country as a Governor and Senator, yet all the media played was that one line. Was it taken out of context? WHO CARES? It was a RACIST COMMENT and that was the end of Trent Lott as the Senate Majority Leader. He never recovered.
We have a history of plenty of people making comments, off the cuff or not, which were played time and time again, and were their undoing. None of them used the "my words were taken out of context" malarkey.
So, when Jeremiah Wright does it, ask yourself what would happen if John McCain's pastor for 20 years made a racist comment, out of context or not, and how the media would play it.
And if black Americans are fine with this man making anti-white and anti-Semitic comments in their midst - note that none of them in the videos stood up to protest, but applauded his bigotry - then this country is farther apart racially than anyone knows. And that is the legacy of Jeremiah Wright and Barack Obama.

The Times of London allowed this startling article to appear in their paper today. It concludes why the Downercrats cannot win this election - because both presidential candidates are losers.
Obama and Clinton: two cynical losers
How do they do it? How do the Democrats manage to squander repeatedly and with such ease the chance of a lifetime? What inverse alchemy have they created that turns the gold bullion of electoral opportunity into the base metal of political oblivion?
Eight years of George Bush, an unpopular war and a recession have handed the Democrats their best chance, not merely of winning their first presidential election in 12 years, but of achieving a rare, once-in-a- generation transformational shift in American politics.
Four fifths of the American public think the country is on the wrong track. The President wallows in the highest disapproval ratings since polling began. The Republican Party has spent most of a decade bungling almost everything it touches, abandoning its principles and sinking into a mire of corruption, hypocrisy and incompetence.
And here we are, six months from a presidential election, and it is the Democrats once again who seem to be staring defeat in the face. It's like a soccer match in which one team keeps conceding a penalty in the final minutes only to watch as the opponents repeatedly boot the penalty kick high into the stands.
Now, we argue with Baker's reasoning, but, that aside, listen to the following:
Hillary Clinton's solid victory in the Pennsylvania primary on Tuesday has condemned the party to many more weeks of strife and sinking public esteem. There's a popular view among Democrats and the media establishment that the reason for the party's current disarray is that it just happens to have two most extraordinary candidates: talented, attractive, and in their gender and race, excitingly new. But there's an alternative explanation, which I suspect the voters have grasped rather better than their necromancers in the media. Both are losers.
The longer the Democratic race goes on, the more obvious it appears that each is deeply, perhaps ineradicably flawed.
Until about a month ago Barack Obama had done a brilliant job of presenting himself as a transcendent figure, the mixed-race candidate with bipartisan appeal who promised to heal the historic and modern rifts in American life.
But the mask has slipped. Under pressure in a Democratic primary, Mr Obama has sounded just like any other tax-raising, government-loving Democratic politician. Worse, he has revealed himself to be a member of that special subset of the party's liberal elite - a well-educated man with a serious superiority complex.
His worst moment of the campaign was when he was caught telling liberal sophisticates about his anthropological observations on the campaign trail. In the misery of their daily lives, he said, the hicks out there in the sticks cling to religion and guns and the other irrational necessities of the unenlightened life. His wife had earlier told voters that they should be grateful that someone of his protean talents had deigned to come among them and be their president.
The events of the last month have also revealed another side of Mr Obama that threatens to undermine his whole message. He is a cynic. He tells the mavens of San Francisco one thing and the great unwashed of Pennsylvania another. In defending his long relationship with the Rev Jeremiah Wright, he shopped his own grandmother, comparing the reverend's views (God Damn America! The US deliberately spread Aids among the black population) to his grandmother's occasionally expressed fears about the potential of being the victim of crime at the hands of an African-American.
This is the main reason why, as April comes to an end, it looks more and more likely that John McCain will be the next President.

When Hillary Clinton won Pennsylvania Tuesday night, her money man, Terry McAuliffe, went on Fox News and praised Fox for being - wait for it - "fair and balanced."
Yep - we have seen it all.
McAuliffe praises 'fair and balanced' Fox
Clinton campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe praises Fox News in a celebratory interview with reporter Major Garrett.
"You were the first ones to call it for Hillary Clinton," McAuliffe said, "Fair and balanced Fox. You beat them all."
Then it's back to Hume, who mentions how "nice to hear none other than Terry McAuliffe acknowledging that we were first on this call and that saying that as other Clinton representatives have, that we are fair and balanced. We certainly try to be. We'll take that and be proud of it.”
This campaign gets more and more laughable from the Downercrats.

Downercrats nationwide are getting that queasy feeling they seem to get every four years, just as they begin to settle on a presidential candidate: did we just nominate another loser?
And now, in 2008, the same questions are being asked about Barack Obama, the Smiling Dukakis.
Fact is Obama’s risky; Even Mass. Democrats starting to take notice
Barack Obama, meet John Adams.
Adams noted during the Boston Massacre trial that “Facts are stubborn things.” And it appears that, for the moment, the facts have caught up with Obama here in Massachusetts.
How else to explain the amazing, astounding and unthinkable results of the latest SurveyUSA presidential poll: Republican John McCain is tied with Barack Obama in the Bay State.
The last Republican to win Massachusetts? Ronald Reagan. The last Republican before that? Dwight Eisenhower. Even George McGovern managed to carry Massachusetts in 1972, the one Democratic holdout in Richard Nixon’s 49-state landslide.
Replace “McGovern” with “MoveOn.org” and you’ve seized the essence of the Obama candidacy. He’s the most liberal U.S. senator, advocating tax increases on the “wealthy” and enjoying the support of Gov. Deval Patrick, Sen. Ted Kennedy, The Boston Globe-Democrat and every 9/11 conspiracy kook in the People’s Republic of Cambridge. He’s got all the players in Massachusetts behind him except the ones who actually vote.
While Hillary Clinton soundly beats McCain in Massachusetts in the new SurveyUSA poll, 56 percent to 41 percent, the Obama/McCain number is 48 percent to 46 percent, well within the margin of error.
A Democrat struggling here in 2008? An unpopular war, a collapsing housing market and $4 gas - if Britney Spears were running as a Democrat, she’d pull at least 50 percent of the Massachusetts vote.
Yep, it looks like the Downies have just nominated Michael Dukakis Obama.

After two years of dismal ratings, it is being reported that CBS is about to dump Katie Couric.
Perhaps hiring a far-left tempermental liberal asshole was CBS' first problem. Then again, Couric did replace Dan Blather.
CBS News, Katie Couric Are Likely to Part Ways
After two years of record-low ratings, both CBS News executives and people close to Katie Couric say that the "CBS Evening News" anchor is likely to leave the network well before her contract expires in 2011 -- possibly soon after the presidential inauguration early next year.
Ms. Couric isn't even halfway through her five-year contract with CBS, which began in June 2006 and pays an annual salary of around $15 million. But CBS executives are under pressure to cut costs and improve ratings for the broadcast, which trails rival newscasts on ABC and NBC by wide margins.
Maybe they can replace Couric with "Palestinian Harry" Smith, another complete failure of CBS to see what larding down their network with liberals means: low ratings and shows no one watches.

Randi Rhoads, the foul-mouthed disgusting leftwing lesbian asshole who routinely mocks the Right, has been suspended from her job for calling Hillary Clinton a prostitute.
The three people who listen to her show will be upset, of course, but the rest of America could care less.
Air America Host Suspended for Clinton Remarks
Randi Rhodes, an afternoon host for the progressive Air America radio network, was suspended Thursday after repeatedly insulting Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton at an event last month.
Ms. Rhodes used vulgar language that likened Mrs. Clinton to a prostitute at an event sponsored by KKGN, the Air America affiliate in the San Francisco area, on March 22. A video of Ms. Rhodes’ remarks was published to the video-sharing Web site YouTube on Tuesday, prompting condemnations by some bloggers.
In a statement, Charlie Kireker, the chair of Air America, said the radio network “encourages strong opinions about public affairs but does not condone such abusive, ad hominem language by our hosts.”
The network called Ms. Rhodes’ suspension “indefinite” and did not elaborate on the fate of her daily three-hour radio show. “The Randi Rhodes Show” is normally broadcast from 3 to 6 p.m. weekdays. Sam Seder, another Air America host, was scheduled to fill in for Ms. Rhodes on Thursday.
On the video, Ms. Rhodes is also shown using derogatory language to describe Geraldine A. Ferraro, a former congresswoman and a supporter of Mrs. Clinton. Ms. Ferraro resigned from a committee of Mrs. Clinton’s campaign last month after making controversial remarks about Senator Barack Obama.
Earlier this year, David Shuster, a reporter for MSNBC, was been suspended because of comments he made about Chelsea Clinton. Mr. Shuster said Ms. Clinton had been “pimped out” to make calls to superdelegates on behalf of her mother.
The Left is now in full melt-down mode. So much the faster, because their defeat is America's gain.
Ted Turner, who proves every day that one does not need brains to make money, is once again making ridiculous statements to go along with his lengthy career of making ridiculous statements.
His new one? The world has too many people in it. And "global warming" will cause crops to fail in 40 years, leading to "cannibalism."
Ted Turner: Global warming could lead to cannibalism; Billionaire environmentalist says world has too many people
Failure to address global warming will have us all dead or eating each other by mid-century.
So says Ted Turner, the restaurateur, environmentalist and former media mogul whose controversial comments have earned him the nickname "Mouth of the South."
If steps aren't taken to stem global warming, "We'll be eight degrees hotter in 30 or 40 years and basically none of the crops will grow," Turner said during a wide-ranging, hour-long interview with PBS's Charlie Rose that aired Tuesday.
"Most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals," said Turner, 69. "Civilization will have broken down. The few people left will be living in a failed state — like Somalia or Sudan — and living conditions will be intolerable."
One way to combat global warming, Turner said, is to stabilize the population.
"We're too many people; that's why we have global warming," he said. "Too many people are using too much stuff."
Turner suggested that "on a voluntary basis, everybody in the world's got to pledge to themselves that one or two children is it."
Admitting that he's "always suffered from foot-in-the-mouth disease," Turner added, "I've gotten a lot better, though. It's been a long time since anybody caught me saying something stupid."
Here's our take - perhaps Turner is right that there are "too many" people in the world. So, Turner himself can take the lead and kill himself. It will get rid of one spot, and get certainly remove one enormous asshole from our midst at the same time.

Imagine for a moment what the reaction of the media would be if John McCain, or any Republican, treated someone like this who merely wanted a photo with the candidate. "McCain's temper shows," they would say. "McCain does not want to deal with the `little people'," you would hear. Keith Dimbulbermann would have a "special comment" on about how rude the candidate was.
But then we see the following, and notice that the media let it pass - just like they let the rest of Obama's terrible record of non-accomplishment pass.
And this man wants to be President of the United States? Pathetic. Simply pathetic.

AND NOW, ANOTHER INSTALLMENT OF: THIS DATE IN DOWNTRODDEN PARTY HISTORY!
April 1, 1994: In the White House, Bill Clinton is getting his dick sucked by some unknown intern whom the media could care less about, even if Clinton later lies about it. Rep. Dick Gephardt, trying to hold together his congressional majority, finds that Clinton won't show up to be seen with anyone in his party in the House. Senator Tom Dasche (D-SD) says that if Clinton does not run for a third term in 2000, he will run - forgetting that Presidents are limited to two terms whether they like it or not. Vice President Al Gore physically attacks a Thai nun who does not hand him his expected $10,000 fee for speaking to ethnic audiences.
Make sure to stay tuned right here for the next installment of "This Date in Downtrodden Party History"!
