The second time, as farce.
Not that the first time was, strictly speaking, a *tragedy*.

They say two wrongs don't make it right /
But it damn sure makes it even.
- Rap artist Sister Souljah, whose famous line "If black people kill black people every day, why not have a week and kill white people?" that had been made about the same time prompted the following response from Bill Clinton: "If you took the words ‘white’ and ‘black’ and you reversed them, you might think David Duke was giving that speech."
Jesus said, 'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.' You cannot do terrorism on other people and expect it never to come back on you. Those are biblical principles, not Jeremiah Wright bombastic divisive principles.
- Reverend Jeremiah Wright, on being asked if he wanted to, say, walk back a bit on his commentary of 9/11 and roosting chickens.
Two points to this: first, I am now officially unimpressed with Rev. Wright's grasp of the message found in the New Testament. Given that I'm not trained in such things and he reportedly is, that in itself is an noteworthy feat. Second, the Obama campaign has just been given a potential free Get Out Of Trouble card.
Will they take it? And if they do, will it actually work? There is a certain flavor of "set-up for a sound bite by rank amateurs" to all of this, but that may just be poor, old paranoid me.
