Is this why Hillary is sticking around?

But
the real reason for Obama’s extraordinary freakout is that he fears the
release of the videotape, reported here, of Michelle Obama in the pulpit of
Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s church railing against “whitey.” And we don’t mean
Whitey Ford. Four Republican sources have told me that the tape exists. I’ve
also been informed that Karl Rove and his allies have a copy of it and are
using it to raise funds for independent expenditure groups. The tape, I’m
told, will be disclosed as the GOP October Surprise. It’s a ticking time
bomb. And I’ve learned that a right-wing Republican billionaire has put a
$1 million bounty on the video. He doesn’t want John McCain to win, like a
number of conservatives, and thinks Obama is a pathetically weak candidate.
The billionaire wants that video released now.



New and dramatic developments. This is a heads up. I’ll post the news Monday morning by 0900 hours. Now I know why people who have seen the videotape say it is stunning. Barack’s headaches are only starting.


We’ll find out tomorrow.

Dave Weigel has a pretty thorough post on this alleged video that's worth a read, and gives a pretty credible rationale why the blogger who "broke" this story shouldn't be taken seriously, especially with such scant evidence.

p.s. pardon the lack of a link here, it's been a while...

Well Larry Johnson is still totally behind this story.

If he’s lying or getting jerked around by someone he’s clearly going to need to get a new job.

Keep in mind that the Lewinski situation developed in exactly this manner; months of rumor followed by media spiking the story only to be smoked out by Drudge.
