The Clintons Are BFF With Rev Jeremiah Wright Too?

So while all of those “Hillary Lovers” out there are yucking it up over Obama having to defend his personal and religious beliefs, here comes the Photo Op of the week on the NYT – courtesy of the Obama campaign staff.

Clinton With Jeremiah Wright

Among those in attendance, was the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., who is seen shaking hands with Mr. Clinton in a photograph provided today by the Obama campaign. Mr. Wright’s relationship with Senator Barack Obama, as his longtime pastor, has been the subject of considerable controversy in recent days because of incendiary excerpts of sermons Mr. Wright gave at their church, Trinity United Church of Christ, in Chicago.

In providing the photograph to The New York Times, the Obama campaign appeared to be trying to divert some attention to the Clintons after a week in which Mr. Obama’s relationship with Mr. Wright has left him facing one of the biggest challenges of his campaign. There is nothing in the picture or the note that addresses whether Mr. Clinton had met Mr. Wright prior to the White HouseOxygen meeting or whether he or Mrs. Clinton knew anything about Mr. Wright’s views.

Anybody out there holding their breath that Hillary will give a stump speech defending her religion? Email me and I’ll make sure you get a nurse and an oxygen tank ASAP.

My letter to Santa: Sexiest Teapot Ever…

Dear Santa:

This is what I want for Christmas.


And while I don’t need any more kitchen appliances, nor do I have any more counter space in my kitchen – in fact, I don’t even drink tea, hot or cold – but I have to have this particular teapot. Put it on your list and I promise I’ll be better behaved than I was last year. (Asking price is $179 US)

Thank you.

(And thank you snarfd and azrhey. For without you, I wouldn’t be nearly the shallow, materialist and pathetic twit that I am right now.)
