Only Anti-Obama People Hate Wright

it's a wright fest in the media today!
check out the latest headlines. here's the top 3 stories at realclearpolitics:
As Wright Speaks Out, New Problems for Obama? - Kate Phillips, NY Times
Wright Has Knocked Obama Campaign Off the Rails - Jim Geraghty, NRO
For Obama, a Voice of Doom? - Eric Pianin, Washington Post

let's face it, the only people who don't understand rev. jeremiah wright are those who don't like obama, that would be the clintons and their camp, and the republican extremists. i think there are plenty of republicans out there who are intelligent enough to know that this is merely a distraction. the rest of us, we've realized this non-issue originated with the clintons and was perpetuated by conservative republicans, in order to bring obama down. the media is merely a tool.
