More Non-Racism XI

Actually it's a misnomer to call this racism, because Judaism is a creed. But, you know.

LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — A Republican candidate for Senate from Arkansas reportedly referred to Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer as "that Jew" during a recent appearance before a Republican group.

State Sen. Kim Hendren told The Associated Press Thursday that he was wrong to refer to Schumer's religious affiliation during a Republican committee meeting last week. Hendren said he doesn't remember the exact wording of his comment, but he was quoted by conservative blogger Jason Tolbert as calling Schumer "that Jew."

"I ought not to have referred to it at all," Hendren told the AP. "When I referred to him as Jewish, it wasn't because I don't like Jewish people... I shouldn't have gotten into this Jewish business because it distracts from the issue," Hendren said."
H/T to Wonkette. Thank GOD the dude didn't say anything belitting Limbaugh or he'd be trouble by now!
