Don't Confuse Them With the Facts!

Media Matters wonders what speech Pat Buchanan heard yesterday, since it couldn't have been the one the rest of America heard Sen. Obama give on race in America. Not only paleo Rethug Pat, but a whole slew of wingnut slimeballs made a curiously similar "mishearing" of one portion of Obama's remarks, those dealing with African Americans accepting responsibility for their lives. Both Brit (the new Fox "Mr. Whitey?") Hume and Juan "BINO" Williams stated after the speech that Obama blamed white America, and didn't say African Americans had to take responsibility for themselves. What part of "...And it means taking full responsibility for our own lives" don't they understand??

It seems the wingnut wurlitzer was spinning out talking points before it actually heard the speech. Either that or it thinks its audience is so numbingly dumb that it can tell them they didn't hear what they just heard, and get away with it.
