It’s becoming increasingly clear that Colorado Senator Mark Udall—or Senator “Mark Uterus” as he has been cleverly but accurately dubbed by local media—deserves to lose to Cory Gardner on grounds of his obvious sheer stupidity. Watch him mangle—but perhaps tell the effectual truth of liberal dogma today?*—the famous axiom of Martin Luther King Jr in this 25-second train wreck:
Here’s the transcript (hat tip: RealClearPolitics):
“I’m so proud of our country,” Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) said as he introduced First Lady Michelle Obama at a campaign event on Thursday. “We showed that Dr. Martin Luther King [Jr.] had it right. Which is that in America, at our best, we judge people by the content of their color.”
Udall quickly corrected himself.
“The content of their character, not the character of their skin,” he said.
“I got it right. I got it both ways!”
“We judge people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.”
*This looks like one of those Michael Kinsley gaffes, where someone speaks the truth: today Democrats do judge primarily by the color of skin.
