No Connection Between Brain and Mouth

Huh-boy. Just keep jabbering and maybe they won't notice that little slip of the tongue...

Way to start off your first televised press conference, Tony. Just a little suggestion... you might want to avoid racially-charged terms like tar baby. And for the luvva pete, don't use it twice.

I'm sure the talking point will be that this was all innocent and he "didn't mean it that way" and we shouldn't attribute meaning to this, yadda yadda. You've heard this before when conservatives make "innocent" remarks. (Or, you can always use the Coulter Defense: It was just a joke.") I just find it very... ahem... "interesting" that Snow chose that particular phrase. Makes you wonder what other "innocent" terms those ultra-sensitive and compassionate big boys at FOX are using behind the scenes, doesn't it?
