70. Bigots always hide behind "teasing"
Obviously you've never been bullied by a bigot. They always say "they're just kidding", that's how they get out of trouble with authority if the victim dares to speak up about it. I was called every name under the sun in high school due to my religion and sexual orientation, and without fail the bullies would say they were just kidding.

FYI, if this happened in your workplace or mine, Begala might have an EEOC complaint. Questioning someone's commitment to their beliefs is an especially heinous thing to do during such a sensitive time as the death of a beloved leader of their faith. It's just not "kosher" and Blitzer was totally out of line. But then again that's par for the course for that jackass, and his antics are one of the many reasons why I quit watching CNN ages ago.
