The whole Mitt Romney/Martin Luther King thing just gets weirder and weirder. He told the Detroit Free Press:

"You know, I’m an English literature major as well. When we say, ‘I saw the Patriots win the World Series, it doesn’t necessarily mean you were there — excuse me, the Super Bowl. I saw my dad become president of American Motors. Did that mean you were there for the ceremony? No, it’s a figure of speech."

This reminded me when he tried to weasel out of answering a question about whether abortion was murder by invoking being a lawyer:

I don’t want to use that term because it means different things to different people. … It is taking human life … Murder has — I used to go to law school — murder has malice of forethought and  all sorts of other things

You know, I don’t know any serious person who cites their college and graduate school education as authority when they talk. Experience, sure. That just strikes me as a weird, weird trait. And also note that it is ad hoc. He didn’t cite his lawyerly authority when he said "I’d have to ask my lawyers" about Iran.

Why do you hate MLK so much?

Sounds like Hucklenut could use himself some book learnin’ right about now….

“The idea that somehow this is a go-it-alone policy is just simply ludicrous,” she said at a State Department news conference. “One would only have to be not observing the facts, let me say that, to say that this is now a go-it-alone foreign policy.”

I like MLK. I don’t like people that use him and their own father as political weapons.

Why do you like someone who lies all the time?

The people bringing up Romney and MLK are just trying to play hateful code-games with racist voters, and you should be ashamed. Romney’s family’s association with MLK shouldn’t be used in 2008 to attack Mitt Romney. It’s hateful race politics at its worst. Good night and merry Christmas.
