Please, move on to more important things. Or just re-listen to the diavlog. Or actually, don't re-listen: just listen. I'm not sure you did the first time.
It's a fine point to make but it should not be made while missing out on details revolving around the case.

I think it does matter, though. Far too many liberals have taken to defending Obama by resorting to calling his opponents racists. The vilification of Breitbart and Fox News in the wake of the Sherrod case is yet another illustration of this, as was the vilification of of the arresting officer in the wake of the Gates case.
