Democratic Congressman Calls Arizona “A Racist Wasteland
Apparently it’s not just GOP goons who jump out of pocket with their commentary…

A Washington state lawmaker has apologized for calling Arizona a “racist wasteland” on Twitter — in a moment of anger following a 17-10 loss by his beloved Seattle Seahawks to the Arizona Cardinals.
“Losing a football game sucks,” Democratic Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon wrote in a now-deleted message. “Losing to a desert racist wasteland sucks a lot.”
The comment drew outrage on Twitter and a series of rebukes from local Republicans. KING5 News reports that the lawmaker is backing down.
“Sometime I mix sports and politics too much in my own brain, and I made a point not very delicately,” he said, according to KING5 News. “That was not a kind thing to say, and I’m sorry for what I said. It wasn’t fair to most people in Arizona.”
While the residents of Arizona certainly don’t deserved to be slandered, the Congressman wasn’t too far off with the “racist” part in regards to their political make up. Truth hurts.
