Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.

Ron Pasta

No disrespect to the current authors of this blog, but are we ever going to hear from Hood again? It's just not the same around here without him.

The BW Crew

No offense taken Mr. Pasta. We hope Mr. Hood returns because this blog is eating into our beach/margarita time!

Puget Sound Blathers

the reverend wright wasn't the victim of reporters sneaking into his church to catch his sermons, he was selling the cd's of it. he was proud of what he was saying and evidently for 20 years barrack obama was proud to sit and listen. i think that's the problem.
and president obama must think it is also a problem given the $150k offered to keep the good reverend quiet.

Puget Sound Blathers

after you end the quote about the deep end, there is a bit more that is very interesting. this part talks about how worried Candidate Obama's people evidently were about the good Rev going off the deep end and giving a rendition of his 'greatest hits.'

"REV. JEREMIAH WRIGHT: Any time I look at that box, with all of those things in it --
KLEIN: What's in the box?
WRIGHT: An e-mail offering me money not to preach at all between the explosion of the media in the first week in March and November election.
KLEIN: E-mail from whom?
WRIGHT: One of his friends.
KLEIN: Whitaker.
KLEIN: Eric.
HANNITY: Interesting. You didn't mention the name Whitaker in the book. But this was a bona fide offer.
HANNITY: With proof. Evidence. Did he show it to you?
KLEIN: No, he did not.
HANNITY: But he says, he has an e-mail.
KLEIN: He says, he has a box, a cardboard box, in which he has put all kinds of things in including this email from Eric Whitaker, who is one of Barack Obama's closest friends, basketball player, they go on vacations together. During the campaign, he -- Eric Whitaker traveled on the airplane, the campaign plane with him. Their families are very, very close. Eric Whitaker is the guy that Barack Obama turns to when he has something personal that he wants to have handled outside of the normal channels.
HANNITY: Why does this sound to me a lot like why John Edwards is on trial right now?
Think about this.
KLEIN: Right.
HANNITY: In other words, is it an offer for an in-kind donation to buy the silence of somebody that could hurt his campaign? Even Reverend Wright said at one point, when they cancelled him for the invocation of the announcement in Springfield, when he announced he was going to run for president -- he was cancelled -- he talked to you about that.
KLEIN: Yes, he did. And he was very upset about it and his family was even more upset about it. And he had to settle for giving a little prayer beneath the platform where he was not seen with the family. But he was not rolled out to give the invocation in front, you know, on the platform in front of everybody in Springfield, Illinois"

Puget Sound Blathers

maybe we should rename the thread,
'one man's preacher is another man's ranter'

but hey, as an theist i don't have much of a care how this aspect turns out. but do get a kick out of how a fellow can attend church for 20 years and develop such a close bond to his preacher YET renounce him when he decides to run for higher office.

maybe it reminds you of how some can be in favor of human rights (gay marriage) and then against it and then for it and then against it and then for it depending upon how he happens to 'evolve' that day.

Lee Atwaters Ghost

? you sound like KS now.

Puget Sound Blathers

he's channeling me now.

he also wants to know what Rev Wright knows and when did he know it. and more details surrounding the $150k offer.

Puget Sound Blathers

oh yeah, its highly likely you are a communist or at least a fellow traveller.


obviously an attempt at humor. no need to email the BW Crew.


why trivialize it then?

KS blathers the bitter truth

Ed Klein is not a conservative - he's more of a centrist or a conservative Democrat. He seems to have documented this book and "The Truth about Hillary" pretty well.

Of course, that means that the Democratics rank and file resort to the attack the messenger if the message is not to their liking, which Klein's writing seems to delve too much into the negative (part of the reality also). Their credibility is wearing very thin if the leftwing attackers fail to even state what really happened and supply proof. It is believable that Rev. Wright was given hush money and interesting that Klein had a 15-minute recorded interview with him. Valerie Jarrett - Obama's senior advisor is a real piece of work - OMG - she's on a part with Nasty Pelosi. Again, no surprise - the ugly record speaks for itself.
