  • Republican Congressman Likens President Obama To A “Tar Baby”

    Whoops. Colorado Republican Doug Lamborn stepped in the briar patch last week when he used the phrase “tar baby” in association with President Obama. Rep. Lamborn has since personally written the President to apologize for his poor choice of words, with a spokesman saying he should have said “quagmire” instead of “tar baby.” If you don’t know why “tar baby” is offensive to African Americans, just do a quick Urban Dictionary search. If you dare. (via salon.com) View List ›
