Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) on Thursday apologized for using the word "midget" in a metaphor to describe the tension between companies and workers, CNS News reports:
Johnson was discussing the right-to-work bill that passed the Michigan legislature on Wednesday when he said, "What happens when you put in a cage fight - a giant in with a midget? Well, the midget will not win the fight I'm going to tell you that. Why? He just doesn't carry enough weight to do so."
On Thursday, Johnson expressed regret on the House Floor to “abnormally small people” whom he may have offended by using “the m-word”.
