blazing assholes

Today's amusing news story is that presidential hopeful George Allen has reversed himself and sort of apologized to the young Webb staffer of Indian heritage whom he publicly ridiculed and called "Macaque," which is a French-Tunisian ethnic slur targeting dark-skinned peoples.

"I would never want to demean him as an individual. I do apologize if he's offended by that. That was no way the point," Allen was quoted as saying today.

---"Sorry about that 'up yours, nigger.'" - elderly woman to Sheriff Bart in the Mel Brooks classic, "Blazing Saddles."
