RUSH: Hillary Clinton was the American Bar Association annual meeting in San Francisco yesterday. Well, last night. And she botched the name of a civil rights icon. Let’s go to the audio sound bites for a Hillary gaffe alert. Now, remember, Hillary is on a new tour that she says is designed to restore trust in government. Does anybody find it strange that she’s doing this while Barack Obama is in the White House? Not a Republican. She’s doing this while the Democrats run the show, restore trust in America tour. Here is what she said.
HILLARY: In 1963 in Jackson, Mississippi, John stepped between angry protesters and armed police to prevent a potential massacre after the murder of Medgar Evans.
RUSH: Medgar Evans. What she meant to say there was Medgar Evers. It was Medgar Evers. It’s just another gaffe, another Obama type gaffe where the media doesn’t even report it when they talk about it, and, if they do mention it, “She knows who Medgar Evers is. She just mispronounced it.” But it reminded me one of our all-time favorite — it’s tough to pick a real all-time favorite. So one of our all-time favorite Hillary bites, March 4th, 2007, in Selma, Alabama, at the First Baptist Church.
HILLARY: Let us say with one voice the words of James Cleveland’s great freedom hymn, “I don’t feel no ways tired. I come too far from where I started from. Nobody told me that the road would be easy. I don’t believe he brought me this far to leave me.”
RUSH: Yes. Ah, from the Grooveyard of Forgotten Favorites. (imitating Hillary) “I don’t feel no ways tired.” She is just horrible at this. But that’s not even the point. The point is that the way the Democrat Party continues to treat African-Americans as though we still live in slavery and they, the Democrats, are their only hope.
