Wright's Passive-Aggressive Shot at Obama?

This guy is keeping himself in the news...which leads me to believe he must be doing it to spite Barry for "distancing himself" from him.

"...It is not an attack on Jeremiah Wright — it's an attack on the black church," he said to applause.

Wright's appearance was his third in four days, keeping alive a story that continues to dog Obama's campaign and at points creating further controversy.

At the press club, he jokingly offered himself as Obama's running mate and embraced Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan even though he said he doesn't always agree with him. He criticized the U.S. government as imperialist and stood by his suggestion that the U.S. invented the HIV virus as a means of genocide against minorities. "Based on this Tuskegee experiment and based on what has happened to Africans in this country, I believe our government is capable of doing anything," he said.

"God damns some practices and there's no excuse for the things that the government, not the American people, have done," he said. "That doesn't make me not like America or unpatriotic..." (source)

There is NO WAY it's escaped him that doing interviews and giving quotes is only further damaging Barack's chances at the Oval Office.

If this article doesn't seal Obama's political coffin, I don't know what will...
