[See NewsBusters for more.] Matthew Dowd, formerly of ABC News, joined CNN Tonight host Don Lemon on Friday evening to declare that the GOP's unwillingness to pass gun control, makes them the analog to the segregationists who threw Martin Luther King in jail.

Dowd began his diatribe by nothing that "today is the 58th anniversary of Martin Luther King's Letter from Birmingham Jail. That's the anniversary of the letter he penned and one of the things he was injustice anywhere, injustice any place is injustice everyplace and one of the other things that's is not often quoted that he said, which goes to the point of why we are not getting anything done, which he said using immoral means to obtain moral ends is wrong, but as wrong or even more wrong is using moral means to preserve immoral ends."
