This’ll do it
Allegheny County, PA GOP chair Jim Roddey made a joke at a Republican election night party equating President Obama’s supporters with the mentally disabled, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Said Roddey: “There was a disappointment tonight. 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.'”
According to the report, “the crowd hollered and clapped.”
