Wright Dares Obama to Disown Him

The irreverent Jeremiah Wright may have done Senator Obama a favor by behaving so obnoxiously over the past few days.

Obama was reluctant to disown Wright, and perhaps reasonable people would have thought less of Obama had he disowned Wright a few weeks ago.

Now, who among us would criticize Obama for "throwing Wright under the bus"?

It looks as though Wright may have decided to jump under the bus.

Did he decide that only through being truly despicable could he make it possible for Obama to do what needed to be done?

It sure looks that way -- unless you believe that Wright is just not smart enough to know that his recent behavior justified Obama's breaking relations with him.
