FRED PHELPS IS DEAD, but Jeremiah Wright is alive and speaking in Kansas City tonight. He’ll be delivering the “Cleaver Lecture on Religion and Public Life,” which “was established at the St. Paul School of Theology by the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce and others in 1999 to honor U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver.”
Cleaver, of course, is up for re-election next year. He’s also having his Congressional salary garnisheed to pay for a bad small business loan. I doubt that Wright will discuss that. “Garnishing the wages of a sitting congressman appears to be rare.” Cleaver is a rare item himself.
