Latest Updates on Larry Johnson's Holy Grail, a.k.a., The Michelle Obama Tape
The pro-Hillary blog HillBuzz
gives the most detailed description of the alleged Michelle Obama tape yet.
(By the way, people are still e-mailing me about the "why'd he"/"whitey" distinction, and what the references to Jena and Katrina say about the timeline. Folks, the transcript on the liberal blog is made up, it's a hypothetical prediction of what would be on the tape. It's no longer worth a moment's debate.)
The HillBuzz description of the tape still raises a few questions, though. They say, "The Michelle Obama Rant Tape was filmed between June 26th - July 1st 2004 in Chicago, IL at the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition Conference at Trinity United Church", but the Rainbow/PUSH event in 2004 was held at the Sheraton, not Trinity United; did the church cosponsor it or something?
A TownHall blogger
claims Rudy Giuliani's team acquired the tape.
Finally, a media source answers my question of how Michelle Obama making these kinds of comments could escape the attention of local media: "How did the message of Trinity United Church of Christ escape the attention of the Chicago media? Or William Ayers? When you're in the the tank, you're in the tank."
UPDATE: A reader found the schedule
for the 2004 Rainbow/PUSH Coalition Conference. For what it is worth, there's no mention of Michelle Obama as a speaker. She is mentioned as a "special guest" at the Women's Luncheon on Monday, June 28, 2004, along with Shoshana Johnson, the first African-American woman POW. (This is obviously the event where they were photographed
with Mrs. Farrakhan.)
Until you see the tape with your own eyes, I would not count on any massive shoes dropping...
