Railing against whitey

Former CIA analyst Larry Johnson at No Quarter confirmed that "three four sources close to senior Republicans" have obtained video of Michelle Obama "railing against 'whitey' " in Rev. Jeremiah Wright's church.

Republicans may have a lousy record when it comes to the economy and the management of the war in Iraq, but they are hell on wheels when it comes to opposition research. Someone took the chance and started reviewing the recordings from services at Jeremiah Wright’s United Church of Christ. Holy smoke!! I am told there is a clip that is being held for the fall to drop at the appropriate time....

...Does Barack have an obligation to tell the Democrats, super delegates in particular, about this tape? Did Barack and his campaign do their basic homework and identify this tape as a potential problem? And, more importantly, do they have a copy? Probably better to deal with this issue before the convention rather than wait for October.

Ahem. Hello, superdelegates?

How much has the DNC vetted Barack Obama? Is anyone inquiring into whether this "whitey" racist clip exists? Or are the Democratic elites so euphorically gobsmacked over what they presume is a cakewalk to the WH?

Remember, the media favor Republicans. The right-wing noise machine is already preparing the anti-Michelle Obama story line.
