Arkansas state Sen. Kim Hendren, who is currently the only announced Republican candidate for U.S. Senator against Democratic incumbent Blanche Lincoln in 2010, has apologized for referring to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) as "that Jew," at a county Republican meeting last week.

"I don't use a teleprompter and occasionally I put my foot in my month," Hendren told Arkansas blogger Jason Tolbert.

"At the meeting I was attempting to explain that unlike Sen. Schumer, I believe in traditional values, like we used to see on 'The Andy Griffith Show,'" he explained. "I made the mistake of referring to Sen. Schumer as 'that Jew' and I should not have put it that way as this took away from what I was trying to say."

Late Update: Hendren gave a further apology to the Associated Press. "When I referred to him as Jewish, it wasn't because I don't like Jewish people," he said. He also added: "I shouldn't have gotten into this Jewish business because it distracts from the issue."

Schumer has reportedly accepted Hendren's apology.

Sorry, sometimes I don't use a teleprompter and I get myself into trouble... I really shouldn't have referred to him as "That dumbass honkey whop flaming homo".

Please ignore my antisemitism, that wasn't meant public consumption, and distracts from the issues.

What?

Taken care of; I've spoken to the Elders.

By the way, here's a totally (ahem) off-the-cuff prediction: Hendren won't win his bid for the US Senate.

Oh, lookie here (from Religion News Service (RNS), a totally uncontrolled and independent news feed service), Senator Hendren is reconsidering running for the US Senate. What a bizarre turn of events.

And, the rest of you, take that as a lesson, muuhahaha.

No, I said one matzahball--one matzahball, goddamn it!
