Here are a few stories of interest this morning …

Remember Jeremiah Wright and the Trinity Church in Chicago?  Of course, who can forget “G-D America.” Paul Ibrahim, writing at North Star describes his recent visit to Trinity Church. Here is an excerpt:

As a Christian, I was stunned that a Christian pastor was partitioning me from those sitting immediately next to me based on nothing but our skin colors. I suddenly felt unwelcome. And at the conclusion of Parker’s speech, I had no choice but to quietly leave.

Gregg Harper, freshman congressman from Mississippi, has (along with 9 others) co-sponsored a bill to exempt residents of Washington DC from income tax. It’s called “The no taxation without representation act.”

(From Pike County Times)

So, if I’m reading this right, DC lobbyists will not have to pay income taxes? C’mon Gregg! K Street must love this bill, but it sure won’t fly on Main Street.

Finally, here is a story about a creepy sounding disease that has been flying under the radar, called morgellons … As is you didn’t have enough to worry about …

Morgellons is a terrifying disease reaching pandemic status. Yet because the symptoms of the disease are so bizarre, people who have it tend to withdraw and become isolated from society. With mysterious fibers and parasites coming through lesions in their skin, Morgellons sufferers often live in fear. As a result there is no pressure on the medical establishment to become educated about the disease, and most practitioners continue to view it as isolated instances of delusional parasitosis..

Video dynamite

michelleonlyeatschocolate.jpgMessiah Obama dared Republican congressional candidates to keep linking their Democratic opponents to him. “The same kinds of tactics that the Republican Party has been employing over the last several election cycles just aren’t going to work this time,” Obama said last week. The next round of ads may include some linkage that the Messiah may have trouble brushing off. This is from Larry Johnson’s website

I now have it from two three four sources (three who are close to senior Republicans) 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. Here’s what the Republicans are currently using in Tennessee:

Such a video would make for a nice “October Surprise.” Heh.
