    I seriously doubt he meant it that way. It was one of those things you say and then go "wow, that sounded really wrong."

    Obviously he didn't mean it that way, or he never would've actually said it. That's just way too far over the line. He still deserves a beating for being stupid enough to say it, though. Same as the "chink in the armor" guy. Obviously nothing was meant by it, but you still have to be smart enough to not say it.

    Did she ever stop to think whether or not she needed to get over her fear of snakes? There's a reason she was afraid of them... because snakes are monsters. It's not like a fear of public speaking or flying... I'm pretty sure you can live a full and healthy life while being afraid of snakes.

    the fear of snakes has probably saved more lives than not being afraid of snakes.

    It's that Alabama black snake she really needs to fear.

    If it was a white guy I could accept it was a corny stupid mistake but black guys never give up a chance to talk about their dick. It's science.

    To be fair, he didn't say "If you're bashful, I have a Mississippi Black Snake sitting under my desk here."
    It was a public hearing, for fuck's sake. If he said it privately, then I would say it was probably said with sexual undertone, not the other way around. Just about anything can be interpreted in a wrong way, if you look for it. That's the problem with this. The statement in itself is not bad, it's when you look at it in a sexual connotation, it becomes that way. His apology, to heal everyone's feelings, should have been the end of it

    Well, he's a Dem. so he knows now what it's like to be sought after for PC speech

    Then he stood up to reveal how he carries two cups of coffee and 8 donuts at once.

    Exactly, just like most other fears... we have them for a reason.
