Also, “Alaskan Asshole” is a Term of Endearment

Rotten Tomato.“During a sit down interview with Ketchikan Public Radio this week, I used a term that was commonly used during my days growing up on a farm in Central California. I know that this term is not used in the same way nowadays and I meant no disrespect.” —Alaska Congresscritter Don Young, not quite apologizing for calling farmworkers “wetbacks”. [Anchorage Daily News]

Update: Take two: “I apologize.” [TPM]
