Bookies Taking Action on Inevitable Romney Debate Gaffes [View all]
From the Fishington Cheesington Post:
Reacting to the news that Mitt Romney will be delivering “zingers” to the president during tonight’s debate, the nation’s bookmakers are taking odds on the probability that the notoriously mistake prone GOP presidential hopeful will accidentally use an unintended slur during the proceedings.
“Right now we’re giving 3-1 odds that he’ll say ‘Negro’ at some point during the debate,” predicts Jimmy “The Snake” DiTullio, oddsmaker at the Palms Casino Resort. “We figure that Romney’s never been that close to a black person before, so he’s bound to get all uncomfortable and say whatever comes to mind.”
