In the wake of the recent buffoonery displayed and insults hurled at Hillary Clinton by nominally Catholic priest Reverend Michael Pfleger in the pulpit of Trinity United Church of "Christ," CNN reports that Michelle and Barack Obama have formally quit TUCC.
Says Ed Morrissey:
[This] shows Obama’s willingness to throw anyone over the side when the boat starts sinking. That won’t go over very well with his core supporters who have admired his loyalty to TUCC, who excused Wright by pointing out that he had retired, and who bought Obama’s explanation of the “wonderful community” and great works of TUCC. Is that now nothing more than a convenient lie?Soon the two will behave almost as if they never belonged to the showcase church of Black Liberation Theology--as if the twenty year association never existed. And his apostles will buy it.
Watch and see.
UPDATE: Gateway Pundit watched the press conference and claims that Obama said this:
I will not denounce the church. It is not a church worthy of denouncing.Now that's what I call a divorce!
INEVITABLE: Not Barack Obama sez:
I did not have spiritual relations with that church......Trinity United.
UPDATE: Always nice to come home to an Instalanche.
