John Sununu, Everybody's Drunk Uncle


Charles M. Blow was on fire on The Last Word last night, ablaze with reaction to John Sununu's stupid "othering" of President Obama.

For his part, Mr. Sununu did what wingers always do after they've gone off the edge of the ledge: He waited until late afternoon to meekly walk back the worst of his remarks on the lowest-rated cable network there is (CNN), saying he "should not have used those words," and then went on to claim that the President didn't understand American business ways, but instead "thinks that jobs are created by giving grants to your cronies, to your bundlers and your cronies."

Way to apologize there, John-boy. That apology was nothing more than an "I'm sorry that I said what I really thought." But fear not, Charles M. Blow was ready for him. You just have to watch the clip, because he was that good.

I only wish I could think of Sununu as my drunk uncle, but even drunks make more sense than he did.
