John Murtha manages to say something stupid…again

Take a peek at how Rep. John Murtha is defending himself after calling his constituents racists:

“What I said, that indicted everybody, that’s not what I meant at all. What I mean is there’s still folks that have a problem voting for someone because they are black,” Murtha said.

 

Murtha said the history of southwestern Pennsylvania is rife with racism.

 

“This whole area, years ago, was really redneck,” Murtha told Channel 4 Action News.

Get it, constituents?  You’re not racist, you’re just rednecks.  Rednecks who are racist. 

How this man has managed to spend 34 years in the House of Representatives is beyond me.
