Cart before the horse
Rev. Michael Pfleger, step right up! You're the next contestant on "I'm A Complete Idiot."
Another religious Obama backer has used his (bully) pulpit to spew racial rhetoric that is doing more harm to Barack's campaign. Personally, I'm not particularly offended by his remarks. I actually don't care what he said. I am, however, ticked off about his timing.
Wanna say something stupid? WAIT UNTIL WE WIN THE ELECTION!
Seriously. Folks like Pfleger and Wright can fan the flames of racism for all I care, but they should at least have the brains to wait until after Obama wins the election (hope hope). Then they can gloat all they want. "There's a new President in town, cracker, so kiss my black ass."
No problem with that here.
But you'll never get the chance if you keep doing this stupid shit. Obama needs to get all his supporters in a room and basically say, "When it comes to race or gender, NO TALKING!". Have them focus on the real issues, Barack, and stop letting these dumbasses shoot you in the foot.
Because you know what? This type of talk from black people (or people associated with black people; Pfleger is actually a whitey) scares the shit out of blue collar white people. You know, the ones Hilary insists you can't carry?
I realize there's no way Obama can make these poeple shut up. I mean, you'd think his distancing himself from Rev Wright would have given Pfleger a clear indication that the O Man was not down with this crap, but apparently Mikey didn't get the memo.
I would hate to think that yet another promising Democrat will loose the Oval Office because of stupid stuff that could have been avoided had anybody really thought about what they were doing.
