Happy “Whitey Tape” Day!

Remember the infamous “Whitey Tape?” Good times, good times:
I now have it from two sources that there is video dynamite–Michelle Obama railing against “whitey” at 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. The last thing Barack and Michelle need is a new clip that raises further questions about her judgment and temperament.

Wonder whatever happened to that tape. Oh, yeah:

One year later, no such tape has ever surfaced.

Did Larry Johnson get played, or did he pull it straight out of his ass? Enquiring minds would love to know.

I’m not feeling nostalgic for last year’s crass presidential campaign, but I do think that people who just made shit up for the purpose of character assassination should be held to account.
