Hillary Compares 2000 Florida Recount to Nigeria's Rigged Elections - U.S. Media Swoons (Video)

Here's CNN drama king Rich Sanchez, in the video clip below, trying to stir up some controversy over another remark made by Hillary Rodham Clinton. What a novel idea. Hillary simply pointed out to her Nigerian audience that they aren't the only country that has had problems with elections:

"Our democracy is still evolving. You know, we had all kinds of problems in some of our past elections, as you might remember. In 2000, our presidential elections came down to one state where the brother of the man running for president was the governor of the state. So we have our problems, too."

We've had problems with elections in this country? Brother Jeb Bush was the Governor of Florida during the 2000 election? Gore won? With a little help from their friends, Jeb Bush, Fox News and the Supreme Court stole the election for Bush? Who knew? In what passes for media in this cowboy country, stating a fact is controversial -- IF the person speaking is Hillary Rodham Clinton. But check out Rick's reading skills. It's been a while since I've seen anyone read with the aid of their finger. How did he get this job?
