Palin Wonders: Why isn’t there more talk about Rev. Wright?

6 Oct

We wonder about that too!

Via USA Today:

Is this an indication of what Republican presidential nominee John McCain’s campaign will be talking about next?

Sarah Palin, the GOP ticket’s vice presidential nominee, tellsNew York Times conservative columnist William Kristol she thinks Obama’s former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, should be a campaign topic again. Kristol writes today that:

I pointed out that Obama surely had a closer connection to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright than to (William) Ayers — and so, I asked, if Ayers is a legitimate issue, what about Reverend Wright? 

She didn’t hesitate: “To tell you the truth, Bill, I don’t know why that association isn’t discussed more, because those were appalling things that that pastor had said about our great country, and to have sat in the pews for 20 years and listened to that — with, I don’t know, a sense of condoning it, I guess, because he didn’t get up and leave — to me, that does say something about character. But, you know, I guess that would be a John McCain call on whether he wants to bring that up.”

I guess so. And I guess we’ll soon know McCain’s call on whether he wants to bring Wright up — perhaps at his debate with Obama Tuesday night.

If you’re looking for a refresher about the Rev. Wright controversy is all about, here’s a place to start.
