Stephen Colbert to the rescue, helps Santorum with his “blah/black people” Problem

On January 1st, Republican Presidential candidate Rick Santorum said in regards to food stamps, “I do not want to make black people’s lives better by giving them sombeody else’s money, I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money.”

Four days laterSantorum said to Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly: “I didn’t say black people, I said blah people.” Well, the ultra-Conservative is having a difficult time backpedaling so Stephen Colbert as always, offers his help:
 

Now that that’s settled, Rick can move on to more significant matters, such as his daily outrage against the gay community to help deprive them of their rights.

    Santorum will begone after SC. No one there will buy what he’s selling.

    As much as I detest Santorum, I listened a dozen times to the “bleh people”, and I don’t think he said “black”. I think his mouth just got twisted on words and nonsense came out. What’s scarier is the usual nonsense that comes out of his mouth.

      I can’t imagine why he would reference “Blah people”.

        I honestly think it was a mouth fumble. But don’t worry Anom, there’s plenty to hate about the man either way. :)

          He clearly said “black people”. He’s a racist, but for all his efforts, he can’t keep it hidden. He’s a bigot and a scumbag, the lowest of the low!

    He clearly said Black People…It may be a fumble but he associated the racial stereotype that all blacks are on welfare.

    “Blah” people. Yeah right! I suspect that someone is backpedalling … unconvincingly.

    It is always amazing that republicans can still manage to walk even with a foot or two in their mouths.

      What we need to do is sit back and think about it.

    What are blah people? That has no meaning other than “Used to substitute for actual words in contexts where they are felt to be too tedious or lengthy to give in full.” Is this what he means?

    “Blah” people? That’s the best he can do? If I were a black person I would more upset at the lame covers story than the original slight. And if I were a blah person, well, don’t even get me started.
