    i mean, you just cant tell what the hell hes saying. everyone seems to want to think the worst, because of his history, but the quality of the video's audio isnt great and he very might well have been saying something else. but from the response of his 'team' i would say that he probably did say it, although i sure as hell couldnt tell from the video

      it matters just a little when you have all the information, for instance, who he was talking to, what his background is, where the target of his verbal assault is from, the fact that he knows what this word means in its native language, and on and on?

      I mean, Bush saying "Bring 'em on" isn't offensive either until you have the context of what he said, when he said it, the repercussions of what he said, who it impacted, the deaths that have come as a result of it, etc.

      It's all in the context and the nuance ... and, lest we forget, Rethugs don't do nuance.
