Obama Supporters getting down and dirty

Youtube was abuzz this week with a clip (now deleted because it was a fraud and doctored)
with a Clinton supporter Mickey Kantor using the (N) in the movie THE WAR ROOM, According to the film makers that never happened. Did the Obama camp put out more mud and more race baiting?


Filmmakers Chris Hegedus and D A Pennebaker write: "We would like to respond to some erroneous statements made today about our film, THE WAR ROOM. These statements alleged certain remarks to Mickey Kantor that simply are not true. The transcript of the scene in question confirms this."
The official transcript:
GEORGE AND CARVILLE: Indiana, we're ahead.
JACQUELINE: Indiana!

GEORGE: Kentucky.

CARVILLE: Kentucky is five. Michigan is eleven, New York's done.
GEORGE: Holy s---, we're pulling away in Ohio.

CARVILLE: Oklahoma we're up.

GEORGE: Tied in Texas.

CARVILLE: Tied in Texas. It looks good. Now let's just say that. I like the text here.

GEORGE: Can you beep Wendy please? Looks pretty good. Looks pretty good.

MICKEY KANTOR: Look at Indiana. Wait, wait. Look at Indiana. Forty-two, forty. It doesn't matter if we win. Those people are s----ing (oh, excuse me) in the White House. How would you like to be... Look at Texas, go down to Texas.
CARVILLE: Even.

MICKEY: Yeah. Thirty-nine, thirty-nine.
CARVILLE: Perot's kind of holding, isn't he?
GEORGE: He held.

MICKEY: Yeah, he held. His numbers held. I'm sort of surprised, frankly.
***

So Kantor was NOT insulting Hoosiers, he was experiencing a moment of schadenfreude about the Bush (Sr.) White House.
Check it out HERE.

Now back to that other question -- who did the fake clip with Kantor saying the N word?!
It's the definition of a dirty trick -- and from what I can tell all the YouTube links have disappeared. Fingerprints gone.
