Hillary Takes It to the Mattress

The Obama/Wright controversy just went up a notch or ten today when Hillary Clinton told the Pittsburgh Tribune- Review re: Wright: “He would not have been my pastor. You don’t choose your family, but you choose what church you want to attend. You know, I spoke out against Don Imus, saying that hate speech was unacceptable in any setting, and I believe that. I just think you have to speak out against that. You certainly have to do that, if not explicitly, then implicitly by getting up and moving.”

Never mind the fake Imus-baiting, those are fighting words that will be all over the media shortly – and if not, itheywill be all over Republican advertising in the general election. Obama clearly did not get up and move – not for twenty years and only after a scandal that, just after it seems to be dying, may be reigniting stronger than ever.
