AND NOW, another episode of the tiresome reality series in which people give meaningless apologies the day after saying something monumentally stupid.
Today's Simpleton of Spin is Pat Garofalo, a Republican state representative from Minnesota, who yesterday "sincerely apologized" for a tweet he made Sunday night.
"Let's be honest," Garofalo wrote on Sunday, "70% of teams in NBA could fold tomorrow + nobody would notice a difference w/ possible exception of increase in streetcrime."
At some point, someone must have told Garofalo, who will be running for a fifth term in the fall, that the majority of NBA players are black. Someone must have also told him his birdbrained babble could cost him votes because yesterday, he recanted.
