Voice of reasonPosted: March 20, 2008
I’d never thought I’d call Mike Huckabee the voice of reason… but… well, there you have it.
On Rev. Wright and Obama’s speech responding to the controversy:
And he made the point, and I think it’s a valid one, that you can’t hold the candidate responsible for everything that people around him may say or do. You just can’t — whether it’s me, whether it’s Obama, anybody else.
Sermons, after all, are rarely written word-for-word by pastors like Rev. Wright, who are delivering them extemporaneously, and caught up in the emotion of the moment. There are things that sometimes get said, that if you put them on paper and looked at them in print, you’d say, “Well, I didn’t mean to say it quite like that.”
Anyone ever seen the episode of The Boondocks where Martin Luther King Jr. comes back after being in a coma for a few decades, and gets ostracized for opposing violent action after September 11, 2001? This whole thing keeps reminding me of that.
