We don’t care about it anymore. That’s what the Obamas say. About what do we no longer care? We stopped caring so long ago that we probably forgot what we used to care about. Maybe the Obamas can remind us:
Democrat Barack Obama and his wife said Thursday the public is tired of hearing about incendiary remarks by their former pastor, as they sought to put the controversy that has rocked his presidential campaign to rest.
“We hear time and time again voters are tired of this,” Michelle Obama said in an interview the couple gave to NBC’s “Today” show.
Oh yeah, that’s what it was about. I’d forgotten about it because it was such a non-issue.
A several point swing in the polls away from Obama since Jeremiah Wright’s press conference a few days ago is an indication that people are tired of the story of Obama’s pastor — at least that’s what you tell yourself if you’re the Obamas, while hoping that others believe it.
