Republican Jackass of the Week

Meet Oklahoma House Majority Leader Dennis Johnson.

Johnson used his time during an Oklahoma House debate to discuss effective strategies for small business owners. Here's what he said:

"There’s such a thing called 'niche marketing,' he began. “You find out what you do better than somebody else and that’s what you market. Then you get the reward of success. People come back to you,” he continued. “They like the service they get, and they don’t ask me—they might try to Jew me down on a price, that’s fine. You know what? That’s free market as well.”

Immediately after this anti-Semitic comment, someone off camera says something like, "what was that?"
After a befuddled attempt to figure out what he said, he kinda, sorta apologized.
“I apologize to the Jews. They’re good small businessmen as well."
Wow. "I apologize to the Jews." 
Hilarious and pathetic at the same time, he then uses the second stereotype to backup his apology:
"They’re good small businessmen as well."

This comes right on the heels of the other Regressive Republican, Alaska Congressman Don Young, who recently said, "My father had a ranch; we used to have 50-60 wetbacks to pick tomatoes."
