Very few people will probably notice, until it reaches print.

The scariest people are the ones who are going to respect him for this, and start a discussion on the evil of political correctness.

So what is the current status on the N-Word?

I am honestly not sure if calling Obama a "nigger" would be an insult or inappropriate right now.

It's still taboo due to racism still actually existing. Somehow.

Damn humanity, ruining my toast.

I'm not sure what he could have been saying.  "Government n," as a variant of "house n" makes perfect sense in context.

I always chose to belive Sanatorum was just an elaborate Onion prank. Makes me feel better about the world a bit :>

Also the moment the video loaded Towship Rebellion starts playing on foobar (set to random folders) X)

Santorum leaves a bad taste in my mouth, but I think in this case he stuttered and it ended up sounding like a racial slur.  It could happen to anyone.  I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt in these situations.

Still, there will be a huge media frenzy.  He should probably pull out now, because if he doesn't, all this Santorum coverage is going to ruin the Republican party's palatability.

Ohh gawd... if this starts up the Nigger Debates again I will go insane!

It is like a stupidity parade whenever we have one.

That's like saying, "Whoops, I better not drop this shit sandwich, it might get dirty."

This was actually my impression as well. It honestly sounded like he stumbled over his words in a rather unfortunate way. Then again, it wouldn't particularly surprise me if he actually came out and said it, either.
