The latest verbal slip-up from Democratic Presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) was earlier today on ABC's This Week. Obama used the phrase "my Muslim faith," and was corrected by host George Stephanopoulos: Some are going wild, insinuating that it shows that Obama really is a Muslim. And I think the video shows a problem. It's not what Obama said. I'm perfectly willing to believe that it was a mis-statement, and not some hidden truth coming out. So the Obamacrats can claim that, and I won't object. But explain away, if you will, Stephanopoulos stepping in and helping correct a mis-statement by, say, Republican Presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), GOP Vice-Presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK), or anyone from the right. Wouldn't happen. But it did for Obama. The real slip-up wasn't Obama letting it out that he was secretly a Muslim. It's Stephanopoulos letting it out that he's biased. But then, we knew that already. We just got another confirmation.


  1. The exact same thing went through my head. Thanks for being sane.

  2. I don't see how you can draw the conclusion that Stephanopoulos is biased from this? You can pose all the hypotheticals you want, but the truth is we don't know what Stephanopoulos would have done had McCain made the slip up. I fail to see a bias at all.

  3. Talmadge East:

    You really think that Stephanopoulos would cover for McCain ... or Palin ... or anyone from the right ... like he did for your Messiah?

    Maybe, unlike LBJ, you don't know chicken shit from chicken salad.

  4. More like Talmadge East is a dyed-in-the-wool Demoçrat!
