Topic: "Render Unto Wright" (4)
Frodo is the last Hobbit in all of Middle Earth to approach with any form of conspiracy theory. He did not believe that there was a "vast right wing conspiracy," nor did he believe that that the University of Georgia deserved to be ranked "Number One" (certainly not in any academic realm) by the Bowl Selection Comiittee. It was surprising to him however, when Samwise began to filibuster over the dinner table about the pecuniary future of one named Jeremiah Wright.
"You watch," said Sam, "sooner or later it is going to come out that some book publisher, or some-as-yet undisclosed major contributor to the Clinton Library is going to be found out as the money behind that old sleazeball."
Frodo sat in stunned silence as Sam continued the discourse.
"It would be just like them to have arranged for some major bucks to be paid to this supposed "Reverend" if he would derail Obama's chances at the nomination. It is not fair," Sam articulated, "that such a good man would be pilloried by people who would do anything to get elected."
Frodo was totally unprepared for such a spin on something he had viewed from an entirely different perspective. In truth, Frodo felt that here was an old guy, under personal assault, who was merely striking back by defending the kind of paranoid proposal which seem to characterize old people. In fact, Obama himself had nearly said the same thing, when he talked about the "bitter" response of some people to their personal circumstances. Sam was, however, putting forth the belief that this latter-day Judas had collected thirty pieces of silver.
"Sam," asked Frodo, "what makes you think it was the Clintons, and not some newly-spun Karl Rove in the McCain camp?"
"That would come later if it was the Republicans," said Sam. "They aren't organized enough yet, they're just letting the Democrats shoot themselves in both feet, and they'll jump in and use their money wisely once the shooting stops, if ever."
"Sam, it is a lot for me to digest," parried Frodo, "I'll have to think on this a bit."
NOTE: Sam is white, under 60, makes more than $50K per year, and has a college degree; ergo, per all measures of statistical polling and media reporting, is thereby prevented from supporting Hillary Clinton. Sam is also left-handed.
Left-handed people, as we all know, are trying to take over the world.
