Jeremiah Wright was everywhere this weekend, conducting a one man media blitz that began with Bill Moyers on Friday and ended with a speaking engagement at the national press club Monday morning. And it sure seems to have worked. At the beginning he was Obama's crazy, America hating uncle, and by the end of the jaunt, the applause went on for thirty or more seconds while Reverend Wright stood back literally flexing his muscles and giving military style salutes to the crowd! The moderator had to admonish the crowd twice to stop clapping! It turns out that when people meet the actual Jeremiah Wright, he's not a crazy uncle, he's a rock star! He says he's been campaigning for Jesus his entire life, and we'd just like to say, somebody get God on the phone, Jesus might just have found the best publicist ever.
