The Internets are abuzz with the rumor that there's a video tape of Barack Obama's wife Michelle Obama railing against "whitey" at Reverend Wright's church. At post time the video - if it even exists - has not been released. Our new buddy Larry Johnson says that Karl Rove has a copy and is using it to fund an independent group that might offer it as an October surprise. And, he says that an unnamed "right-wing Republican billionaire has put a $1 million bounty on the video" because he wants it released now, figuring like me that, unless someone better comes along, Hillary would better than McCain.
Johnson also says that this explains Obama's recent "leave Michelle alone!" cri de coeur (link). And, he says that four GOP insiders have all confirmed that the tape exists.
Now, obviously, this could all be a sham released by various people, or it could be real. So, at this time I suggest considering it just hopeful thinking.
