2008 Elections: Penultimate Post

We're really beginning to hate this election around-the-clock coverage, but as an atheist and firm believer in the Constitution of the United States of America, we feel it our duty to post about the manufactured controversy the mainstream media is generating regarding Reverend Jeremian Wright.

When we started reading about his recent address at the press club some time ago, we decided if we were going to be hearing inflammatory rah-rah from some unknown god-botherer, well, bag that. We have more important things to do with our life.

We tend to avoid any talk about religion, as a rule. People get excitable and emotional about their religion and it's not possible to have a rational exchange of information or opinion. So, why bother? We might as well be watching Britney Spears minus underpantment for all the intellectual gratification to be derived from such interchanges.

But when even supposedly progressive bloggers and people of our acquaintance began shrieking about the Reverend Dr. Wright's supposedly inflammatory remarks, we began to wonder if we should find out more. Then, Buzz Daly posted a lengthy and interesting piece about Dr. Wright and asked why he was being so savagely attacked by the mainstream media and the blogs, and we became even more interested.

Remembering the role of the media in sabotaging the previous two or more elections, and their lickspittle encouragement of the war which has now drained our treasury and the lives and minds and souls of so many, we embarked on some research. Buzz was right. This entire thing is a bunch of the most corrupt, scum-sucking, corporate assholery and total fucking bullshit.

The entire transcript of the Reverend Dr. Wright's speech is available here. You need to register, but registration's free.

Please. Go read the goddamned thing. Because if there is a single objectionable word or thought in there, it's certainly not coming from the Reverend Dr. Wright, who is as fine and outspoken a man, despite being one of the religious, as we have heard in a long time.

Read it and tell us what he is saying that's objectionable or unacceptable or wrong. This man left college to serve his country honourably. And moral midgets like Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, and their entire horde of scum-sucking arselickers are allowed to question his patriotism?

We fucking think not. Read it or listen to it and make up yer own fucking minds. This is utterly fucking ridiculous. To think that a nation that prides itself on freedom of speech is so utterly stupid and spineless as to attack this good man for saying something they don't agree with? We must be living in the fucking gulag.

I agree. It's ridiculous and manufactured by an MSM that can't wait to present candidates that they can do bidness wid.

Right on TPC! You wrote the post I wanted to write. As a fellow atheist, I have to say that if I weren't an atheist (and if I lived in Chicago) I'd certainly want to be a member of Reverend Wright's church. I am not only NOT offended by what Reverend Wright has to say, I have to also stand up and cheer when he says it!

MR Wright is some how fun!!
If I was him I could go a head with my preachings and leave alone the 'politics'

Any way you never know what is in his mind

That's exactly what it's all about, I think. They want to have someone to make bumpitus wiv. Fuck. If I wasn't a pacifistic puppy I would wish a plague of STDs on all these fuckers.

Dollink! So good to see you! If only virtually.

Talk to Ms. Manitoba, I think she's planning some kinda get together for us. I'd love to see yez again.

And, yeah. I could actually go to a church that this guy was preaching in, cos, you know how often I go to church.

Hi, Lovely Rebecca,

How nice to see you! Yes, you know, I'm amazed that anyone would find Mr. Wright's preachings objectionable.

Hope you are well, brilliant woman.

Hi TPC. I saw Ms. Manitoba on Friday and she mentioned a possible get together in the near future. It's been to long since the last one already. 'Bout time for another one!

Agreed. We should get KD to bring Mary, too, and maybe dig our JerseyJo out of her hideyhole. Hugs!
