An unhappy Seattle politician got a little carried away after the Seahawks lost to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Representative Joe Fitzgibbon tied his dissatisfaction of the loss and immigration reform into one poorly-executed tweet.
Fitzgibbon later deleted the post. He didn’t apologize for calling Arizona a “racist wasteland,” but rather gave an explanation for it.
Upset re hawks loss, and failure of smart immigration reform–shouldn’t have conflated the 2 though. Happy holidays, better for both in ’14

Here’s to 2014, Joe-boy. May it contain fewer blanket statements and foolish tweets.
