Okay a little levity in the title, but seriously. Why apologize when you really didn't mean to do anything wrong? Rick Sanchez Apologizes After Labeling Obama the 'Cotton-Picking President' | NewsBusters.org Now, were I a lefty where everything is measured on political gain, and Sanchez were a tea party member, I would scream to the heavens this is an example of tea party racism, when I KNEW IT WASN'T TRUE. However, I am not a leftist, and Sanchez is most certainly NOT a tea party member. Sanchez is a leftist asshole and a douchebag to boot (language, I try to avoid normally, but when the boot fits, and it sure does on Sanchez.) However, it's pretty obvious he didn't mean any racist aspurgions on Obama. Cotton picking is just a term. "If I had a dime for every cotton picking time, I had to call Bill Clinton a liar, blah blah blah." "George Bush is the cotton picking president." Come on. He didn't mean this in a racist way. Anyone with a dose of common sense would know that. Why apologize if you did nothing wrong? Only in this politically correct society would we have to do anything like that. If common sense ruled the day, as it should, everyone would take a chill pill, and stop looking for racism where there be none.
