Betrayal  —  I have frankly been a little bit confused by the reaction to Reverend Wright's recent comments around the sphere and even here on this blog.  I thought most people in the Netroots were big Obama supporters and yet they defend Reverend Wright, which I find rather surprising considering what he did.
