Michael Moore Weighs in on Wright

Artmooreking On “Larry King Live” tonight, Michael Moore elaborates on his endorsement of Barack Obama and why he chose to endorse him over Hillary Clinton.

He tells King, “When I said [I was] ‘disgusted,’ that came with the ABC debate. When she threw out [Nation of Islam leader Louis] Farrakhan, when she said the word Farrakhan and Hamas — to somehow attach that to Sen. Obama — I just thought that was beneath everything that she used to stand for. And I think at some point, she’s going to be disappointed in herself for having done that.”

As for Obama’s handling of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Moore says, “I mean I go to Mass still. I’m a practicing Catholic. I’ve been that way all my life. But if I had — if I had gotten up every time I heard a priest from the pulpit in my travels around the country say things like I’ve heard them say, that birth control is a sin, that women should not be priests, that women should have a different role in church …”

Moore, however, says that he won’t vote for John McCain should Clinton become the nominee.

Meanwhile, with “The O’Reilly Factor” drawing record ratings for Bill O’Reilly’s interview with Hillary Clinton, TNR.com looks at O’Reilly’s obsession with the New York senator.
