Apparently the Media Thinks MLK Quotes are ‘Bizarre’

(h/t Damian Geminder)

In case you haven’t heard, there are members of the mainstream media out in full force today mocking Governor Palin over her speech delivered to a cheering audience who gave her a standing ovation at the end and chanted “Sarah, Sarah, Sarah” throughout it.

Byron York claims that Governor Palin can’t be serious about a presidential run because of her line: “the man can only ride ya when your back is bent.”

Jonathan Capehart at the Washington Post said something similar:

He referenced the line and then said:

That kind of talk defies her mumbling about being “seriously interested” in running in 2016. She’s not serious at all.

Yet, what these self-appointed smart guys may have missed is that Palin’s line was a reference to the wisdom of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who said the same thing in a speech delivered August 16, 1967.

In short, over the last ten years the Negro decided to straighten his back up (Yes), realizing that a man cannot ride your back unless it is bent. (Yes, That’s right) We made our government write new laws to alter some of the cruelest injustices that affected us.

Once again where Governor Palin is concerned, the “bizarre” and “serious” comments on her by the alleged intellectuals in the mainstream media have predictably left them with egg on their faces.

And Byron York wonders why constitutional conservatives spend time holding them accountable.  Maybe if the media did their job — or were at least half as informed as they’d like to pretend, we wouldn’t have to do it for them.
