Do you have video editing skills, and copies of Malcolm X and The American President?

Over at Hot Air again (yeah, I really know how to go wild on my weekends), in the discussion about how our levelheaded, nonthreatening, middle-of-the-road friend Barack Obama is using Malcolm X's "hoodwinked and bamboozled" line in his stump speech:

Obama steals lines from a lot of lousy sources. For instance, he’s particularly fond of that Michael Douglas/Annette Bening movie “The American President” — he repeats lines from that “president’s” speech quite a bit...

Sounds like a chip off the ol' Biden! It might be interesting to see the quotes he's, um, "borrowed" alongside the originals, huh?

P.S. Ask and ye shall receive. Here are Barack and Malcolm side by side, along with some of the others to whom The One has "paid tribute":

And that's from last February. Wonder who he's "borrowed" from since then?
