Can you say October Surprise?
The controversial Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s pastor and mentor for 20 years, who now joins a number of people under Obama’s Bus, will release his book in October and go on a book tour just prior to the election.
“In October, Obama’s former pastor, Wright, will publish a new book and hit the road to promote it, an occasion that might well place the topic of Obama’s blackness (along with his patriotism and his candor about what he heard in the pews in all those years at Trinity Church) squarely at the center of the national debate. How Obama handles that moment may determine whether he becomes the next occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.” — New York Mag
Best news I’ve heard all wee. I can’t wait for the media hoopla on this one!
Great line from John Hawkins:
Wright is crawling back out from under the bus and delivering a little payback to Barry O.
