MSNBC has been trying to spin this story to make us believe there are tons of birthers in the tea party. They act like he has shot himself in the foot for calling them dumbasses. He regrets calling them that but just wants to get back to more important issues.
As far as the high heel comments and the whole thing about cowboy boots. Somebody (MSNBC) is not telling the whole story. I don't remember the details, but the woman running against him brought that on. She was commenting on either his boots, her heels or his manhood or something. I don't remember but anyways shame on MSNBC for not telling the whole story. They'll do anything to discredit someone backed by the tea party.
