GOPUSA ILLINOIS Daily Clips - April 30, 2008

QUESTION: How successful have Obama's handlers been in turning the Wright lemon into Wright lemonade, that is, how successful have they been in orchestrating Obama's "Sister Souljah moment?"

WIKIPEDIA
-- Sister Souljah moment
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sister_Souljah_moment
(THE DEFINITION: In United States politics, a Sister Souljah moment is a politician's public repudiation of an allegedly extremist person or group, statement, or position perceived to have some association with the politician or their party. Such an act of repudiation is designed to signal to centrist voters that the politician is not beholden to traditional, and sometimes unpopular, interest groups associated with the party, although such a repudiation runs the risk of alienating some of the politician's allies and the party's base voters.)

DAILY HERALD
-- FRONT PAGE IN DUPAGE EDITION: DIERSEN HEADLINE: All the religions of the world discourage homosexual activity. Elton John has called for the abolition of all religions because they discourage homosexual activity. With the Daily Herald's promotion of "dueling" National Day of Prayer services in DuPage County and with its blasting of traditional prayer services held in Wheaton, tragically, the Daily Herald, its owners, its employees, and its advertisers make it even more clear that they disapprove of traditional religions and that they agree with advocates of homosexual activity like Elton John.
