Cornelius Walker thinks there are a few perfectly logical explanations for what word Rick Santorum may have been saying that aren’t necessarily the N-word.
Everyone is talking about Rick Santorum’s supposed gaffe Thursday afternoon because of what they perceive to be him almost calling President Barack Obama a nigger.
Before everyone rushes to judgement, there are plenty of explanations for Santorum’s stumble:
- he was going to call him a Knicks fan, then remembered he’s from Chicago and probably roots for the Bulls
- he was going to call him Nice, but remembered these are people who booed the Golden Rule
- he was going to say he was Neighborly, but realized Muslims don’t make good neighbors
- he was going to call him a Nigerian, in an attempt to pander to the birthers, but remembered Obama was born in East Africa, not West
See, there’s at least four perfectly reasonable explanations. I’m sure if you watch the video you can come up with your own.
