Say it ain’t so…

I think, out of weariness, I’m just going to let this one speak for itself. Representative Jim Moran (D-Va), never known as a fan of love-speech, had this to say on an Arab television network:
It [the Republican successes in the 2010 elections] happened for the same reason the Civil War happened in the United States. It happened because the Southern states, the slaveholding states, didn’t want to see a president who was opposed to slavery.
In this case, I believe, a lot of people in the United States don’t want to be governed by an African-American, particularly one who is liberal, who wants to spend money and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society.
Can my liberal friends fill in the blanks?
Sources here, here, here, and here. The original source has a voice-over in Arabic, making it more difficult to determine what Moran was saying. Determine for yourself. If it turns out Representative Moran actually said, “the 2010 election results happened because Martians invaded and successfully converted hundreds of thousands of Americans to pod people…,” I’ll be relieved regarding our nation’s political health.
