Who Is The "Reverend" Of Which You Speak?

Geez, Graham, how long are you gonna keep pounding Barack Obama for this Rev. Wright thing? The Reverend retired, Sen. Obama has already said he doesn't agree with EVERYTHING the guy said. What more can Sen. Obama do, you racist moron?

Why, Barack hasn't used Rev. Wright to promote his campaign since...last week. It's ancient history!

That's right. Barack Obama was distributing campaign literature as recently as last week, touting his relationship with Reve. Wright.

Ben Smith at Politico.com has posted a flier paid for and distributed by the Obama campaign during last week's Pennsylvania primary. You can view the actual flier for yourself by clicking here.

The flier, handed out at black churches in the days before the primary, describes Sen. Obama as a "committed Christian," and specifically reports the following:

"So one Sunday I put on one of the few clean jackets I had and went over to Trinity United Church of Christ on 95th Street on the South Side of Chicago. And I heard Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright deliver a sermon called "The Audacity of Hope."

Why? Why re-print and distribute this specific text from Sen. Obama's book to black voters at the same time that Rev. Wright is denouncing the "U.S. of KKKA" and claiming that America's soldiers are just "Al Qaeda under a different flag?"

Does Sen. Obama believe that Rev. Wright's idiocy appeals to black voters? Is this why he refuses to reject Rev. Wright and his teachings as a whole? Does Sen. Obama see a political upside that he's trying to quietly exploit in the pews of black churches?

And--more importantly--when will the sycophants at CNN and MSNBC finally call Obama on this? When these same fliers show up next week in Gary, IN and Greensboro, NC?
