    But I'd please like everyone to remember what they did when Obama got a quote given to the wrong person on the oval office rug

    Which isn't a legitimate complaint -- missing a detail of where a battle took place or denying that there was ever any racism in the US?

    The first one, I'd probably agree with. The second one is hardly a tiny detail, it's kind of one of those big, overarching themes.

    Who said anything about him. Bachmann said in a speech that all people who came to America were treated the same "regardless of skin color." Hello? Ever hear of slavery? Jim Crow? Not exactly tiny details.

    The Glenn Beck history course is more like a Reader's Digest abbreviated version... far-right style.

    The important question is why did you have to repeat the class so many times?

    Here's a good response...
