One bad person ain't bad. Half a nation though… August 9, 2012

So this is circulating.  Apparently Pennsylvania’s Allegheny County GOP Chair, Jim Roddey, told a pretty offensive joke.  It’s below the fold for those who don’t want to glance at it.

“I was very embarrassed. I was in this parking lot and there was a man looking for a space to park, and I found a space for him. And I felt badly — he looked like he was sort of in distress. And I said, ‘Sir, here’s a place.’ And he said, ‘That’s a handicapped space.’ I said, ‘Oh I’m so sorry, I saw that Obama sticker and I thought you were mentally retarded.’”

That’s not what bugged me.  There will always be inconsiderate, petty people in the world.

This is the part that bugged me.

At an election party last night, Pennsylvania’s Allegheny County GOP Chair, Jim Roddey, brought the crowd to laughter and applause by calling an Obama supporter “mentally retarded.”

These people make up about half the country.

Sometimes even stuff like this can’t restore my faith in humanity.
