But Remember, this has NOTHING to do with Obama

Some of the coverage of the Democratic presidential primary race certainly swerves into the realm of “puzzling” with other adjectives (e.g. arcane, jaw-dropping) coming into play. The trend continues today. Though Barack Obama has rejected the support of his controversial pastor, some of his fellow Democrats continue to keep a close watch on anything and everything said at Trinity Church from his home stomping grounds. This just in from (among other sources in his own party) Big Tent Democrat at TalkLeft.

First of all, this has nothing to do with Barack Obama but I have to ask, what in the world is going on at Chicago’s Trinity Church? This is simply outrageous:

What follows is a video of yet another guest pastor talking about Hillary Clinton and speculating that she was upset that “a black man” might be taking the nomination she “was entitled to” as a white person. Provocative stuff indeed, but nothing we’ve heard from Obama himself. This is followed up by yet another disclaimer.

I repeat, this has NOTHING to do with Barack Obama, but there is clearly something wrong at Trinity Church in Chicago.

Of course! This has NOTHING to do with Barack Obama. But one has to wonder… there are literally hundreds of thousands of churches across this country. As recent reports have shown, all manner of controversial things are said in many of them from both the left and the right. Is Big Tent Democrat out there covering all of them for any and every instance of incendiary speech? Or do you suppose that there is some unspoken admission that much of the country already associates Chicago’s Trinity Church with Obama, so such a story might still feed into the anti-Obama sentiment?

Hey, I’m just asking. And, of course… this has NOTHING to do with Obama.
