Throwing the tar out with the bathwater 

Tongue Tied picked up the local story on a local politician who referred to the city's human rights commission as a "tar baby". Local leaders are going all David Howard on him. It's too bad that these groups are allowed to diminish our language ever further; for their next trick, perhaps these groups can ban Chef's Luv Shack from area stores.

I also think the Times running this piece two days (the second so they could cover his letter of apology to the commission) is a bit of overkill. Has anyone seen coverage of Cynthia McKinney in the Times?
