Obamagirl Responds to Anti-Obama/Anti-Obamagirl Harlem Pastor

On Youtube, via Drudge, I saw this video of this rather…eccentric…Harlem minister, James David Manning, railing against Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., for being a "long-legged mack daddy" who "pimps white women and black women." (Warning: Pastor Manning uses some rather harsh language.)

His main objection seemed to be the "I Got a Crush on Obama" video, which of course the Obama campaign had nothing to do with.

"You don’t get your campaign started with a big chested white woman!" Manning railed. "She must be a 54-D! Double-D!"

I emailed our old friend, Amber Lee Ettinger, aka Obamagirl, to get her take on Pastor Manning’s video.

"For starters I’m not a 54DD!" she says. "But that video was misleading. It says our ‘Crush on Obama’ video came from the Obama Campaign, and I have always made it very clear that we did the video entirely on our own. There have been a lot of positive support videos for Obama like the will.I.am one…and I like to put us in that category."

She found Manning’s sermon "really offensive," and it’s not hard to see why.
