Oh, look! A shiny! Democrats and their counterparts in the media are at it again. Distract! Distract like the wind! Now it’s a lame attempt to make a kerfuffle out of a SuperPAC exposing Jeremiah Wright’s hate. Everyone in the entire world must repudiate it or they are “hate-filled and divisive.” Unlike the subject, who is warm and fuzzy what with his “Goddamn America” and “AmeriKKKa” and “chickens coming home to roost” spouting.

DNC communications director and press secretary enter the mix with totally not hate-filled rhetoric.

If @MittRomney can't clearly denounce the type of scum bag tactics planned by his allies as outlined by the NYT he's not fit to lead.

@kakukowski @GOP Still no RNC response to disgusting Ricketts proposal: “The Defeat of Barack Hussein Obama" http://t.co/uKwSUhvh

The media, of course, thinks that Jeremiah Wright is irrelevant … except for when they are screeching about how talking about Wright is racist.

Naw naw naw! RT @luke_johnson: So cable TV is going to be all about Jeremiah Wright today #its2008again

— daveweigel (@daveweigel) May 17, 2012

No, no. It was shut down in 2008.

Jeremiah Wright said what about America?! Oh, this could change everything #justwokeupfromunderarock

Nice unbiased journalism, Reuters.

Non-Obama boot lickers don’t agree.

Note to the MSM: If Rev. Wright is off-limits, so is Mormonism.

— jon gabriel (@exjon) May 17, 2012

Sorry MSM, but you no longer get to decide what is or isn't relevant. WE do.

— jon gabriel (@exjon) May 17, 2012

The relevance of any story from a politician's life or career depends on its context in a narrative containing surrounding facts.

If you jumped on a thing written on a rock by a guy who sold land to Rick Perry's dad decades ago, Obama's closest mentors are not a stretch

If your main job is shutting down critics of the President, you're not a journalist; You're a censor.

— jon gabriel (@exjon) May 17, 2012

As the smart @KatMcKinley said, Jeremiah Wright is a piece in the Obama puzzle. All pieces of the puzzle deserve scrutiny.

I'll not bring up Jeremiah Wright if the Obama campaign pays me hush money.

— Frank J. Fleming (@IMAO_) May 17, 2012

Mitt Romney has already rushed to repudiate it because heaven forfend he is seen by the elitists in the media as meany pants. Criminy, Republicans, grow a pair of brass ovaries already, will you?

RT @Rebecca_CBSNJ: "Romney thinks that's not what we should be focused on," says Pawlenty of Romney's reaction to ads.

— Sarah Boxer (@Sarah_Boxer) May 17, 2012

The Left wants to talk about how we shouldn’t talk about it. Oh look, a shiny!

324,000 women have left the work force over the last few months, but the Left wants to talk about Jeremiah Wright?

— Teri Christoph (@TeriChristoph) May 17, 2012

Yep. They want to make hay to distract from Obama’s failures and to distract from the fact that he was mentored and/or counseled by Jeremiah Wright, his pastor for decades. Instead, they try to flip it around to paint those who actually vet Obama as “hate-filled and divisive.” This way, they can continue to set the narrative. But like the Twitter users above said, that isn’t going to happen any longer; conservatives will no longer allow it.

Imp to note prior Ricketts stmt in the proposal: 'If the nation had seen that [Wright] ad, they'd never have elected Barack Obama.'"

— Melanie Roussell (@MelanieOMB) May 17, 2012

Huh. Wonder why, Melanie? And that is why they are screeching in a lame attempt to turn Obama’s sleazy associates into a bashing of Romney.

There should be a hashtag to cover all their feigned outrage. Perhaps #ObamaDistractions.

FYI, the center of the controversy, GOP donor Joe Ricketts, has disavowed the proposed ad.

The DNC continues to try to make hay, though. Hey, he has a false narrative to push!
