Big Difference

Steve Benen notes that there is a big difference between the connection that Barack Obama has with his controversial minister and that between John McCain and the pastors of the Religious Reich:

Obama has a personal connection to Wright that goes back many years; McCain began sucking up to radical right-wing preachers fairly recently for partisan gain. McCain wasn’t a member of Jerry Falwell’s or Rod Parsley’s congregation, he just sought them out, sang their praises, and refused to denounce any of their scandalous public remarks.

Clear as mud.
