Well, I guess Ted Kennedy is probably not going to like this one very much, but it turns out that one of Obama’s buddies for over a decade… a man who babysat his children, a man in whose living room he launched his political career, a man with whom he worked with at two different foundations, and a man with whom he has shared many speaking engagements with…
This man, this friend of Obama’s, wrote a book called Prairie Fire. In the introduction, he dedicates the book “To All That Continue To Fight And All The Political Prisoners In The US.”
That’s fine, except for one of the men named was Sirhan Sirhan… the man that assassinated Robert Kennedy.

Go ahead… guess.
If you guess… you might be right Wright!
Yep, our old friend Reverend Jerimiah “Gawd Damn America” Wright is going on a book tour to promote his new book, and when did he choose to do it?
That’s right… October.
He is going on tour in the worst possible month for Obama, but it is sure to get LOTS of media attention and sell lots of books… and Wright would get to teach Obama a lesson about throwing people under the bus.

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.
WOW… October is gonna be interesting if Obama is the Nominee. (emphasis on the IF).
