Except Palin is white, and there's no shortage of wacky white pastors. The only reason Rev. Wright was an issue was because of white phobias about "angry blacks"--e.g., racism.
Instead, Palin's pastor will be more likely embraced as part of the illustrious group of nutty white pastors that form the power center of the "Religious Right," rather than condemned as a lunatic like Rev. Wright.
i think you're right, but at least what's nice is that the Republicans have told us that all of their earlier complaints about Obama -- lack of experience, surrounding himself with so-called radicals, angry preachers -- really don't matter any more. because all of these things are true, in droves, about Ms. Palin. so they're saying that, really, it doesn't matter. positions matter. policies matter. it's the issues that matter.
i'm so relieved.
