Wright vs. Hagee

By on 3.16.08 | 3:18PM

In a post Friday, I argued that Barack Obama's statement on Jeremiah Wright would not have been enough to end the controversy if he were a Republican attending John Hagee's church. Daniel Larison disagrees, saying "the mainstream media have shown relatively little interest in making much out of McCain's acceptance of Hagee's endorsement." I guess it depends on what you define as "relatively little interest" -- the Hagee endorsement seems to me to have gotten a fair amount of press, and predictably everyone who is worried about Hagee is downplaying Wright and vice versa.
