38. IMO, the more people learn about Wright, the more they'll understand his anger
and the more they'll hate Sean Hannity for cherry-picking two minutes out of a hundred hours at .

IMO, the whole case against Obama rests on the assumption that what Hannity cherry-picked was representative of what Obama and 8,000 other congregants heard for the last 20 years. That assumption CANNOT be true, and all but hoard-core bigots will will listen to NPR, Newsweek, and other authentic news sources to educate themselves about Wright during the next week or two.
