Rev. Wright today:

"Politicians say what they say and do what they do because of electability ... He had to distance himself because he's a politician..."
Today, Rev. Wright referred to Barack Obama as a "politician."  This is, perhaps, one of the worst criticisms possible.  It also raises several follow-up questions, including:

...  Is he saying Obama is misleading or manipulating the voters?

... Is he admitting that Obama is just another politician, and if so, doesn't this undermine Obama's entire Raison d’Etra? 

...  Is he saying that Obama is really with him (wink wink)?
