Okay, sometimes people are just looking for stuff to whine about

Republican Congressman apologizes over “tar baby” comment.

Lamborn spoke to KHOW-AM Friday. He was responding to comments about whom voters would hold responsible for actions on the nation’s debt ceiling when he said he thought voters would blame the president. Lamborn said: “Now I don’t want to even have to be associated with him. It is like touching a tar baby and you get it — you’re stuck, and you’re part of the problem now.”

Honestly, this is like using “niggardly” in conversation. Yes, it sounds bad, but his intention was clearly non-racial and even made sense. Okay, bad choice of words and honestly who even says “tar baby” any more, but this guy ain’t a racist. Settle down.

  1. Good for you. Nice application of common sense. This could jeopardize your good standing as a liberal, though.

  3. Until you have been called a peckerwood or a redneck enough times you will NEVER understand what it’s like.
