Mike Glover of the AP reports Obama saying (of Jeremiah Wright) that he is “outraged,” that “there are no excuses,” and that Wright is trafficking in “ridiculous propositions.”
Outrage is a step in the right (no pun) direction. Obama needs to leave the church and apologize for his mistake before Wright derails his campaign entirely. There are practical political realities to consider here and Wright is somewhere in outer space. It’s time to cut off his oxygen supply.
