Not to defend the Obama campaign's relative silence on Jeremiah Wright, who I think could be a serious liability down the road, but this made me chuckle:

What drives me crazy is how this could have been avoided so easily if Wright was the slightest bit media-savvy. Had he merely controlled his tongue and limited himself to advocating an attack on Iran to encourage massive worldwide Muslim attacks leading to a fulfillment of the biblical prophecy of end-times and bringing about Armageddon and the summary slaughter of every Jew, Muslim, Catholic, and non-believer on the planet while rapturing him and his flock up to heaven, then followed it up by denouncing Catholics as cult members and blaming Hurricane Katrina on gay people, this story wouldn't be metastasizing like this. One five minute milquetoast repudiation by Obama and it would all be behind him.

But what does Wright do instead? He spews this vile "God damn America" bile. What a psycho.

Strategy session at Clinton campaign headquarters.


Rush Holt and his comically messy desk star in a New York Times video about undecided Democratic superdelegates. Way to parlay that indecision into some national exposure, Rush! (Strangely, he doesn't get so much as a mention in the accompanying article.)
