Will Rev. Wright Make The Transition From Pastor To Saboteur?

I know I can't be the only one thinking that the Rev. Jeremiah Wright is going to do everything within his power to make his former parishioner lose this election. And not because Obama was forced to throw him under the bus to maintain a political pulse, either.

Why else would Wright continue to issue poisonous, subcutaneous editorial problems for the man such as placing him on the cover of the church's literary organ, Trumpet Magazine with raging, anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan? Especially when the cover manages to include Elisha Mohamed, Johnny Cochran, and the rapper, "Common," all the while omitting Martin Luther King Jr.?

What would Obama's successful ascent to the presidency serve, other than to discredit the conspiratorial gripes and hate-filled vociferations of people like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the Rev. Jeremiah Wright?

Short answer? Nothing. Maybe I read too much into these early salvos, but I have to wonder what kind of palpable panic will ensue at Def Jam records if Obama actually transcends the demographic divide and becomes president. Where's one to moor the ship called Rage if the harbor waters are friendly?
