Though it is mostly out of the news now (unless you watch FOX "News"), the Rev. Jeremiah Wright/Barack Obama "scandal" was fodder for weeks. It was one of those surreal moments: Hillary Clinton and John McCain supporters were insisting that Obama was getting a "free ride" from the press, while he was being assailed for something somebody else said.
Right around the same time, a story broke about something unsavory that John McCain had said to his wife. It was a multiple-sourced story, and to date, I don't think it has been debunked. The comment was incendiary to say the least, and would logically deter any of Clinton's disgruntled supporters from ever voting for the man. But, funny thing, the story never grew legs. Ask yourself seriously, if Obama was on record saying the same thing to Michelle, how many hours of cable news time would be spent eviscerating him?
This video puts it into perspective. Fair warning: This video uses a word from McCain's remark repeatedly. . .and it is most definitely not suitable for work, nor should it be played around any women who haven't been given the same warning. Or maybe not even then. You've been warned.
