You know, the pastor can't say it, the liberal media has to spin it, believers don't want to hear it, but hey! as the Bible says "we could not speak but what we had seen and heard". In case you live on Mars and haven't been tuning in, there's been talk that presidential contender Barack Obama is a "Manchurian Candidate", an insidious plant (yes, like the pod people from the movie 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers') sent by either Al Qaeda or yeah, maybe the martians, the ones that almost got Tom Cruise. So here in all it's inglorious goofiness are the little snippets of trivia that will either put you to sleep (so you too can be turned into one of the pod people) or maybe transform you into Johnny Got His Gun (BTW, don't panic, that's just an old anti-war film).
First on the list, the string of outrageous home videos of candidate Obama's pastor showing off his flare for colorful theological outbursts. Hey, maybe there's hope for YouTube after all. Now, in case you think the candidate got a bum rap, just stopping in for a quick peek at pastor Wright's epic sermonizing, turns out Mr. Obama has been going to pastor Wright's church for many years. Makes you wonder what message Barack's kids were picking up from pastor Wright's diatribes while sitting in the pew with their dad. But, then, maybe you should see for yourself.

Now as for the next clip, I have to say, even at my age, I know I remember at least a few things my pastor said over the last ten years (and, I admit, more so the things that could have been construed as controversial). But Mr. Obama says he didn't know anything was wrong until he saw his own pastor's sermons on television. Yipes!
