At a campaign event for Katherine Harris, Dick Armey took a moment to educate the world about the two types of Jews in America:
“I always see two Jewish communities in America: one of deep intellect and one of shallow, superficial intellect,” Armey said, according to the Bradenton (Fla.) Herald.
But don’t worry. He didn’t mean to insult Jews:
During his usual briefing with reporters, Armey said he meant no ethnic slur. Rather, he was answering a question posed to him regarding political divisions among Jews.
He said the only point he wanted to make was that liberals of all backgrounds are less intellectual than conservatives.
“They don’t think deeply. They don’t comprehend,” he said.
See? He only meant to insult liberals. I’m so glad he cleared that up. Now we can all go back to aspiring to be as smart as he is someday.
