South Carolina Lt. Governor Andre Bauer tried to extricate himself from his unfortunate comparison of people on public assistance to stray animals by saying “maybe the stray animals wasn’t the best metaphor.”
In an interview with CNN, Bauer apologized, sort of.
“I never intended to tie people to animals,” he said, before…tying people to animals: “If you have a cat, if you take it in your house and feed it and love it, what happens when you go out of town?”
Okay, so now he’s going to get PETA and the SPCA on his case for talking about abandoning cats. Some people don’t know when to just stop talking.
