35. This was edited to make it sound like she said "white people".
She actually said "wet people". If you listen to the whole thing, she talks about god and rain right after saying it. This clip cuts that part out and prints "Who likes white people" across the top.

This kind of editing and manufactured outrage is the kind of thing the right does. I always thought we were above that here on the left. Let's please be honest so we don't make ourselves look like fools.

Bachman is enough of a wack-job already without having to create things like this.
