Krusty Konservative: My free advice to Terry Branstad

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

My good friend Kathie Obradovich recently wrote an article in which
she calls on Terry Branstad to apologize for comments he made about
blind people. Her article was spawned by the Iowa Democratic Party
Chairman Mike Kiernan's press release asking Branstad to apologize. In
a private meeting a week ago, Branstad said that the commission of the
blind didn't get cut back in the day because legislators couldn't deal
with the tap-tap-tap of the white canes. As you know I can at times be
a little insensitive, but I find the remarks to be kinda funny. Is
what Branstad said really offensive to blind people? Well guess what,
the spokesperson for the commission of the blind that it was a
complement to their organization's effectiveness. He did not demand an
apology at all.
