CNN Apologizes for Guest Using Term ‘Crosshairs’; America Still Awaiting Apology for Parker/Spitzer

The knee-jerk PC continues to get comically out of hand:

CNN’s John King: “Before we go to break, I want to make a quick point. We were having a discussion about the Chicago mayoral race. My friend Andy Shaw used the term ‘in the crosshairs’ in talking about the candidates. We’re trying, we’re trying to get away from that language. Andy is a good friend, he’s covered politics for a long time, but we’re trying to get away from that kind of language.”
