I Probably Shouldn’t Have Tweeted That…Pat Garofalo!

The bonehead tweet of the week goes to Minnesota Representative Pat Garofalo! Not only is this Tweet offensively ignorant with regards to the popularity of the NBA it also manages to be incredibly shortsighted and racist. Also, ironically enough, if his hometown Timberwolves were among the 70% of the teams that folded (which they almost certainly would be) the NBA would be losing a team that’s TWO best players (Love and Rubio) are Caucasian! I’m sure if he didn’t have basketball to fall back on, no-goodnik shooty hoops stars like Love and Rubio would be running WILD in the streets!

The lesson here, politicians, much like athletes, need to think before they hit that “submit” button. Lest they come across as ignorant, racist assholes.
