With Friends Like These

Mammas are wont to caution us about keeping bad company. St Obama should have paid more attention. We find this morning that the Rev Jeremiah Wright is going stick by his erstwhile parishioner. And he's on a speaking tour so he should have plenty of opportunity to render his verbal support. Mike Allen's "Politico" column says that, so far, it's going something like this:

The pastor also insisted Obama “didn’t denounce” him and “didn’t distance himself” from Wright’s controversial remarks, but “did what politicians do.”

Wright implied Obama still agrees with him by saying: “He had to distance himself, because he's a politician, from what the media was saying I had said, which was [portrayed as] anti-American.”
Oh, yeah. He's going to be a big help.

(Need more? Well, there's this fella.)
