In an appearance on MSNBC’s “The Dylan Ratigan Show,” Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown described some of his congressional colleagues as “niggardly.”
From the conservative Daily Caller:
“Of course we’re falling short,” he said. “There’s plenty of people, as you know Matt, in this Congress that will always send a blank check when it comes to spending money on defense, on war, but are a little bit more niggardly, if you will, on spending money on the actual veterans when they come home. And that means we don’t greet them well enough in terms of getting them the right testing when they’re back in Coshocton, or Cleveland, or Lima, Ohio.”
The word “niggardly” doesn’t have a racist connotation. In fact, it’s defined as, stingy or petty in giving or spending. But to many, especially on the right, that won’t matter.
