Obama bit the "bitter" while still trying to get rid of the Wright stuff. Why now? He noted white resentment in his earlier race speech after the Rev. Wright's remarks became part of the news chain. Note my April 4 entry about the media largely ignoring that part of Obama's speech. He says pretty much the same thing later, the Huffington Post makes it sound like news and it's all over the place. Lemming journalism at its best. The big story is this: how was the Huffington commentary - and it was commentary - promoted? Are reporters and editors afraid of the bloggerman?
