#rsrh Newsweek’s Howard Fineman: Birther.

Fineman, on Obama (via Althouse):

He staked everything on this and, like the long distance runners from his fatherland, he made it (barely) across the finish line.

I was under the impression that the ‘fatherland’ of Barack Obama was the United States of America.

UPDATE: I was expecting pushback on this to show up earlier.  Here’s the original screenshot: note the failure to indicate a correction.


  • Joseph S says:

    If you look at the page to which you’ve linked, it actually says “his father’s homeland”, which was indeed Kenya (he returned there after leaving Obama’s mother and died there). The version you have is a misquote.

    • Moe_Lane says:

      The version I have is from the original, which was later sanitized without explanation or correction. Original screenshot here.

      Did you really think that I was going to leave myself open like that?

    Moe – Hilarious Freudian slip by Fineman! But it figures that our LSM buddies at Newsweek, would try to cover their, um… tracks.
