Uh-Oh! Isakson's Major Gaffe: Calls voters "Unwashed"!

Yesterday Johnny Isakson (R-GA) who is facing a tough re-election made a huge verbal gaffe after meeting with Sharron Angle.

Sen. Johnny Isakson refers to Nevada voters as ‘the unwashed back home.

Here's what Think Progress said:

Yesterday, Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle “introduced herself to a very curious Senate Republican Conference” at their weekly caucus lunch. Apparently, the “Republicans walked away impressed.”

Then Roll Call spoke to two GOP senatore, first John Thune (R-SD) who said he was impressed by what she had to say, and then our own Johnny Isakson followed with this statement:

Republicans, who heard Angle’s presentation were, to a letter, impressed. “She said she won, she needed money, and wanted to be a part of the team and was glad to be here today,” said Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-GA, who said Ensign also showed a recent Rasmussen poll showing Angle up 11 points against Reid. “She did a good job. She’s an articulate lady…This was an introduction. It wasn’t the kind of speech you would give to the "unwashed" back home, she was talking to her colleagues,” Isakson recounted.

The Term "Unwashed" is a derogatory term in which those who are, pertaining to or characteristic of the common people; untutored, unsophisticated, or ignorant; an ignorant or lower-class group.

Now there are those who will say this is no big deal & that he was referring to the voters of Nevada, but you have to wonder that does he think Georgia voters are "Unwashed"?

He said this wasn't the kind of sppech you would give to the "unwashed" back home. So whatever speech she gave to the GOP, he wouldn't give back here in Georgia because the people here are Unwashed? Think about it for a minute folks.
