Disclaimer: I'm watching Faux for Oppo-oppo-research. Got a good one today.

Geraldo was interviewing Michael Brown and Roger Stone.

Roger Stone announced that a major network has a tape of Michelle.

"Some indellible record exists of public remarks that Michelle Obama allegedly made which are outrageous at best, termed racist including some reference white people as whities allegedly."

Geraldo cut him off, calling for evidence to back up his statements, and then Stone insisted on finishing

"There has been a race here between the Clinton people who are seeking this info and the Republican opposition researchers at the Republican national committee... I believe a major network now has this tape...I believe this will roil the race, which explains why, to me, Hillary Clinton is staying in this race. What other reason for her to stay in this race other than hoping there is a bomb... a high level Clinton operative says there is a bomb of this nature."

Geraldo again interrupts Stone but disclaims that Stone was one of the first to report on Elliot Spitzer's Troopergate.

My comment: if this is true, and there is a tape of Michelle making incendiary statements, so what? She is not Obama and she is not running for President. Vanity is about to bust a report on Bill Clinton's sex on the campaign trail. But why should Hillary be judged for that?

Furthermore, if the Clinton camp is responsible for this tape, they ought to be disgraced and discredited from attending the convention. If they are responsible, Mark Penn, Howard Ickes, Lanny Davis and Clinton herself should be banned from the convention under the Zel-Miller-Rule.

I believe this story is the same bull-shit story that Larry Johnson was peddling yesterday and would explain it coming from the Clinton campaign.

On Edit: Stone said to expect this story to break tomorrow (before Tuesday's elections) and that no fewer than seven news organizations have contacted him regarding this story.
