As we celebrate Easter, it's a good time to remember the people who are important to us. Like the pastor you followed for 20 years, and respected enough to have him baptize your children.
I couldn't resist bringing back "Jeremiah Wright in a Bunny Suit" for this Easter edition of the Hope n' Change Vault. After initially showing him in this get-up, I think I used Jeremiah several more times in other scenarios...without really bothering to explain why he was still dressed like the Easter Bunny. Or, in these politically correct times, perhaps he was the "Planting Season Bunny," who distributes "Spring Spheres" (rather than Easter eggs) to kids. Sigh...
In any event, you have a much better chance of seeing the real Easter Bunny today than you do of seeing Jeremiah Wright welcomed at the Whitehouse. Rosa Parks may have made sure that Blacks don't have to go to the back of the bus, but Barack Obama has demonstrated quite clearly that it's still okay to throw them under the bus.
But putting all of that aside for now, Hope n' Change wishes all of our readers a very happy Easter, and a joyous and meaningful day to everyone no matter what their faith.
