GOP Leader Boehner Demands Apology for Slur

When I read the headline about Minority Leader John Boehner being angry about a slur, I had assumed it was the utterly offensive sentiment expressed from a GOP official who called OUR president and a GOP Gubernatorial contender "RAGHEADS".

But no, what got Boehner even more orange than usual was a joke from a freakin' Beattle.

And he wants an apology...NOW!
House Minority Leader John Boehner is demanding an apology from music legend Paul McCartney after the Beatle took a slap at President Bush during a recent White House ceremony....

Upon receiving the award, McCartney deadpanned, "After the last eight years, it's great to have a president who knows what a library is."

Boehner said that showed a "lack of grace and respect".

No doubt, the lies and toxicity that Rush, Palin, and Beck spew on Obama can't be considered "a lack of grace and respect".

In the meantime, this "honorable" GOP offical decided to express his grace and respect:

Republican state senator Jake Knotts went on a local politics chatshow on Thursday night and called Haley a "raghead", and at least once "a f#!king raghead," according to one local newspaper report.

"We got a raghead in Washington; we don't need one in South Carolina," Knotts said more than once.

So where is the call for his apology, John?
