   I can't believe that -- IMHO, that's just his spin.  He's upset a bit 
because he felt that he had added enough of a "disclaimer -- this is just 
theory" type of remarks -- but the guy isn't stupid.

   Bennett knew he was adding racist fuel for his white listeners and in his 
mind, he'd rather have his listeners bitching about blacks rather than 
bitching about (a) the poor economy, or (b) the disastrous New Orleans 
response, or (c) Bush's wars, or (d) any other current event that could be 
directly linked to the Bush administration.  I'm sure he's well aware of the 
politics of divide and conquer.

   Bennett is just upset that this was picked up on by the media and that his 
fig-leaf disclaimer isn't holding up.
