Jeremiah Wright Does Not Plan To Release Presidency-Sinking Book About Obama After All

by Sara K. Smith

'The fix is in.'Hey, maybe Jeremiah Wright wants Barack Obama to be president after all! Following EXPLOSIVE reports that he was going to publish a picture book in October featuring Barack Obama getting AIDS from the Muslim prophet Mohammad, Reverend Wright’s daughter now says that he has absolutely no plans to write a book any time soon. She also says her father would respond personally to email inquiries, but he is in “email hell,” which we are informed means “a place in Ghana where it’s difficult to send and receive email.” When will Barack Obama apologize for his former pastor’s daughter using the word “hell” so glibly?

Phew. Hopey’s secret about his black children are safe.

Wow, Jeremiah Wright just made me believe in God. I’d better not run for president anytime soon.

He can’t do the book because he can’t find anyone willing to do the artwork.

My suspicious husband thinks the book thing was “just some GOP disinformation to get Wright’s name back in the news”. Sadly, that sounds pretty credible to me. More so than my theory that Obama took Wright’s dog hostage until after the election: “no book, you get your dog back.”

Also, he’s in Ghana? Wow, the Obama Machine really IS good!

But I routinely receive email from Ghana, Nigeria, Benin, and Togo. I suspect in the most recent that Wright is posing as this distressed woman. I can read between the lines.

DEAR SIR,

URGENT AND CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS PROPOSAL

I AM MARIAM ABACHA , WIDOW OF THE LATE NIGERIAN HEAD OF STATE, GEN. SANI ABACHA . AFTER HE DEATH OF MY HUSBAND WHO DIED MYSTERIOUSLY AS A RESULT OF CARDIAC ARREST, I WAS INFORMED BY OUR LAWYER, BELLO GAMBARI THAT, MY HUSBAND WHO AT THAT TIME WAS THE PRESIDENT OF NIGERIA, CALLED HIM AND CONDUCTED HIM ROUND HIS APARTMENT AND SHOWED HIM FOUR METAL BOXES CONTAINING MONEY ALL IN FOREIGN EXCHANGE AND HE EQUALLY MADE HIM BELIEVE THAT THOSE BOXES ARE FOR ONWARD TRANSFER TO HIS OVERSEAS COUNTERPART FOR PERSONAL INVESTMENT. . .

You know, I think it’s about even odds. GOP smear to stir up the Wright thing again? Oh, very likely. Wright having an ego and wanting to get back in the spotlight? Well, that’s fairly likely, too.

Still, if you made me bet, I’d bet on the GOP smear machine. They’re just so darn motivated in their work.

I fell pretty confident that this came from some GOP source. Definitely. If you go back and read the NY Mag story, there’s no sourcing there at all. My guess is that the reporter got duped somewhere along the line.

[re=58405]MrAgro[/re]: That’s some funny shit.

Fear of a Black Reagan August 13, 2008 at 11:02 am

Wow! I bet this is totally unrelated to any financial incentives from Tony Rezko or pressure from militant NOI rent-a-cops!

Scratch one off the Obama deathcount!

The Real JR Revisted August 13, 2008 at 11:03 am

[re=58402]eatsshootsleaves[/re]: Yeah, with the whole gas prices and all, they weren’t able to shoot his ass into the Sun which was originally Plan A.

[re=58416]Botswana Meat Commission FC[/re]: [re=58408]Terry[/re]: [re=58401]Doglessliberal[/re]: …I’m actually surprised they haven’t started a rumor that Rev. Wright is going to be Obamas Veep.

I want to read the part in which the Reverend tries to lure Malia into the sacristy with a holy wafer.

Doglessliberal August 13, 2008 at 11:35 am

[re=58477]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: Hey, it is only August, there’s time.

AngryBlakGuy August 13, 2008 at 12:08 pm

[re=58504]Doglessliberal[/re]: …it would make a hell of a bumper sticker; “Vote Wright, vote OBAMA!”

[re=58529]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: Not to be massively disrespectful, but the Yahoo Answers crowd has been on it for months.

Isn’t Ghana were Hoffa is buried?

Oscar Folsom Cleveland August 13, 2008 at 6:31 pm

Will the Ghanaian pop-up book feature intimates portraits of Wright and Bill in fervent prayerful embrace? This could help Hillary in her write-in campaign; between Paultards and Nadermania, Billary could slither past both Hopey and Walnuts! and take back the great white mansion on the hill!

Jeremiah for Veep! Any Veep!

Gypsy Man August 14, 2008 at 2:17 am

The question now is whether Obama got to Wright with pressure or money or something else. Not WRIGHT for America (www.notwrightforamerica.com) has been all over this story.

It looks like there could be some more developments. It would be interesting to know why Wright changed his plans.

How much was he paid off?
