1/26/11, "Some still fighting the late unpleasantness, like Jim Moran," Washington Examiner, Mark Tapscott
"Rep. Jim Moran, the unusually mean-spirited New Yorker...somehow managed to become Alexandria's congressman....
- Speaking last night following President Obama's State of the Onion address, Moran was interviewed on an Arab network. Listen carefully and you will hear these words:

"In this case, I believe, a lot of people in the United States don’t want to be governed by an African-Amerian, particularly one who is liberal, who wants to spend money and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society….”"It's difficult to hear over the translator, but you can watch the interview below. Note Moran's, uh, creepy reaching out to the woman interviewing him."...
