Bain Capital isn’t Jeremiah Wright

I’d add a fourth reason you can’t compare the Rev. Wright fracas to Bain Capital attacks: the former was a culture war issue that few people outside of partisans cared about, while the latter is a 99% vs 1% issue that most people can have an emotional reaction to, even if they don’t understand the details.

This is why the comparison is so silly: it assumes that a sermon Obama may have listened to with a some inflammatory language that can be taken out of context is of the same importance as the actual work Romney did for years to enrich himself. While that might be true with culture warriors and vapid media types, it doesn’t hold true for the rest of us.
