Obama Getting Covered. Oops.

They say you are known by the company you keep. And the Rev. Jeremiah Wright seems to have been good company for Barack Obama in recent years, with the good Senator appearing at least three times on the cover of Wright's Trumpet magazine - once in a montage with Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakahn sometime in 2005/2006 (the montage appears to be African-American leaders, so the placement was no accident).

If the facts that bizzyblog laid out are correct, this makes Obama's I-didn't-really-know-the-man excuse seem pretty lame. Why did Obama object and distance himself from Rev. Wright only now, and not back then? Especially when he was on the same cover as Farrakhan, who Obama claims to have denounced.

It's going to be interesting to see how Obama, and his cheerleaders the Mainstream Media, deal with this one. My money is on "not at all," as I think they'll dismiss anyone gets upset by this as a West Virginian bigoted, ignorant, redneck hayseed.
