More "Wright-isms" Trumpeted

Hugh Hewitt has more Wright-isms this morning, gleaned from past copies of Trinity United's rather hard to find past issues of Trumpet magazine, including this one that has Obama's smiling face on the cover, along with those of Louis Farrakhan, Nation of Islam co-founder Elijah Muhammad and serious leftist, racist fruitbasket Dick Gregory.

There are about a dozen excerpts of Wright-isms at Hugh's post, all with the same awful familiarity, like this:
Conservative fanatics line up on the side of al-Qaeda or they line up behind George Bush. Both are terrorists! Both believe that war is the answer. Both believe in murdering innocent people. George Bush lied to the public.
Of course, it doesn't matter how many more of these we dig up. Those who believe in Obama, like the otherwise wholly sane Token Dem in my office, have found a way to forgive him these trespasses, choosing the less obvious "those aren't his beliefs" or more onerous "well Wright's not all wrong" answers over the more probable "he's covering up a part of his true self" answer. And those who are already appalled by the Wright-Obama connection don't need to be more appalled; it's already quite sufficient.
