NAACP and Tar Babies

“Anyone running for public office should remove from their vocabulary any language that is sensitive to any ethnic group. ‘Tar baby’ is one of those phrases,” Gordon told the Herald.

Bruce Gorden is President of the NAACP and he was deeply offended by Mitt Romney's reference to Tar Babies in connection with the catastrophic Big Dig in Boston. Well maybe not deeply offended but it was a good opportunity to attack a Republican.

Betsy wonders about his priorities.
