The Wright context?

Posted By on Wed, Mar 26, 2008 at 3:51 PM

Most everyone by now has seen the soundbite of Barack Obama's pastor Jeremiah Wright bellowing "God damn America!" from the pulpit of his Chicago church.  The way the polls look, unless something slips or breaks, historians may well look back on Wright's sermon someday as Obama's version of the famous, campaign-scuttling Dean Scream.

On the flip side, some are saying that Wright's comments make more sense when they're seen in context. You be the judge. (Warning: 8+ minutes of video).
