Gaffe of the Day
Virginia House Del. Frank Hargrove is certainly efficient with his insults. He was able to offend blacks and Jews in pretty much the same ...
In arguing against a proposed state apology for slavery, Hargrove said that, while slavery was reprehensible, he thinks "that our black citizens should get over it."
In trying to put his remarks in context, Hargrove countered, "Are we going to force the Jews to apologize for killing Christ?"
Um, needless to say, he's receiving some criticism for his remarks.
