Jim Geraghty of NationalReview.com’s Campaign Spot listened to the new Jeremiah Wright audio posted immediately below (with transcripts being added as Duane can get to them). His reaction:
Permit me to propose a new rule: If your mentor of 20 years has ever declared the United States to be ‘the same as al-Qaeda, under a different color flag, calling on the name a different God to sanction and approve our murder and our mayhem!’ you are ineligible for the Presidency.
Jim is reacting in the same way as Fred Barnes, Morton Kondracke and many of my callers did yesterday when I played both of the sermons over the air. Now will MSM allow the public to hear the “context” Pastor Wright has complained he has been denied? It isn’t like the cable channels are stuffed with can’t miss material. One of them should play the audio.
One of them should also play the audio of my question to Senator McCain about William Ayers and his answer, and Jennifer Rubin’s question about Hamas and his answer. My exchange is posted here, and I played the audio of almost the entire McCain blogger call in the first hour of yesterday’s show.
One of the nets should also play the 2007 audio or video of William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. It is posted here.
Three big pieces of audio/video that bear on the presidential campaign of the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party, and they have been heard only on radio and over the web.
