BARACK OBAMA SAYS REV. WRIGHT HAS APOLOGIZED for his racist sermons. Tom Maguire wonders how he missed it. Maguire’s post will not make comforting reading for the Obama campaign. “So, when did Wright acknowledge that what he had said was deeply offensive and inappropriate? The AP story recounts some of Wright’s controversial comments but oddly omits to mention his apology, as does all other news coverage with which I am familiar. And I am strangely certain that a Wright apology would have made the news.”

And Don Surber comments: “This is hilarious. . . . When it came time to leave the church, Obama voted present.”

UPDATE: In an update, Tom Maguire notes that Obama’s people are saying that the apology was hypothetical, or something. Read it and see for yourself.
