Well, scratch that.
He did, after 20 long years as a member of the black liberation church, or so goes the story in Yahoo!
“I’m not denouncing the church and I’m not interested in people who want me to denounce the church,” he said, adding that the new pastor at Trinity and “the church have been suffering from the attention my campaign has focused on them.”
Selfless, ain’t he? This is called a PR move, and quite honestly, it’s several months too late. This is the bold step he should have taken when Jeremiah Wright opened his now infamous and vilified trap. Instead, it was the theosophical POV, “Wright is old school, that’s how they roll, not me though and I can’t be held responsible.” Guess what, sir… you were. It’s called ‘guilt by association’.
Politically, if this country fully understood what McCain was all about, and didn’t hold the disdain for President Bush that it unfortunately does, Obama’s popularity would have tanked. (BTW, any time there is guile for the President, it’s not good. Regardless of party or preference.) Instead, he gave a few great speeches, McCain hit Letterman and Hillary was… well, she was Hillary [anyone hear that toilet flushing?].
