rev. michael pfleger, the catholic priest who last week mocked democratic runner-up hillary clinton, was officially suspended for two weeks by the parish he serves in south chicago. i’m kinda surprised by this, because he has said plenty of controversial things before. it’s just that this time he has brought negative national attention not only once again on trinity, barack obama’s *old* church, but this time on his home church as well. and of course he thinks he’s being wrongfully suspended. well, ‘boo hoo hooooo….’ i mean, i don’t exactly disagree with what he said, but at the same time, he had to see this coming.
and congratulations to obama, on securing the number of delegates he needed to get the democratic presidential nomination. whatever you may think about him, you have to be impressed with the fact that, almost out of nowhere, he triumphed over america’s most prominent (and crooked) political family.
