| Durbin Blows His Defense of Obama »
March 17, 2008
I feared it would be about race, right from the start.
White America was jubilant to be "post racial." People were spellbound by Barack Obama, as were Rev. Wright's congregants. The candidate's audiences could hardly contain their emotions. Adults swooned, even fainted, over his most elequent words.
But then, something happened. We got to see, thanks to the huge ego of Rev. Wright, videos of what he actually said and meant, and almost as bad, we saw the ecstatic behavior of his congregants. "God damn America." With that phrase, the Rev. Wright doomed the presidential run of a black man who could have been grand.
Yes, Barack, Michelle, and Jerimiah, "the chickens have come home to roost." Not the chickens you expected and they ain't roosting where you wanted them. But, indeed, they have come home to roost.
