Hope you're not full on Rev. Wright; there's more to go around

News

A group of Republicans is mounting a campaign to reintroduce Rev. Jeremiah Wright to Americans who may have forgotten him. Or, introduce him for the first time to Americans who missed him in 2008.

The campaign was commissioned by Joe Rickets, a partial owner of the Chicago Cubs.

“Our plan is to do exactly what John McCain would not let us do: Show the world how Barack Obama’s opinions of America and the world were formed,” the proposal says. “And why the influence of that misguided mentor and our president’s formative years among left-wing intellectuals has brought our country to its knees.”

The plan is designed for maximum impact, far beyond a typical $10 million television advertising campaign. It calls for full-page newspaper advertisements featuring a comment Mr. Wright made the Sunday after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. “America’s chickens are coming home to roost,” he said.

Pretty sure Sean Hannity fills the Rev. Wright void every night. But hey, he's only on TV. These guys are looking forward; they want to run ads in newspapers.
