Dem Rep. Jim Moran: 'Older White Guys Most Insecure Component of Society; Much The Problem'

January 16th, 2013 6:39 PM

Weird stuff.  Then again, we are talking about Jim Moran.  Appearing on Al Sharpton's MSNBC show this evening, the Dem Congressman from Virginia declared that "older white guys" were "the most insecure component of our society."  Added Moran, possibly alluding to the difficulties in adopting additional gun control measures, "we're much the problem with these kind of things."

Joan Walsh was there to support the self-doubting Moran.  "There are a lot of terrific older white guys out there," reassured Walsh, naming Moran and Vice-President Biden among them.  View the video after the jump.

So older white guys are "much the problem"?  Really?  Maybe Moran should make way for a younger, less melanin-deprived person to represent his district! 

Watch the latest chapter in Moran's strange saga.

JIM MORAN: Clearly, we had a very successful election in November. I worry a bit about 2014, when we don't have the President at the top of the ticket.  We have a disproportionately number of older white guys, and frankly, being one of those types, we're the most insecure component of our society as far as I'm concerned; we're much the problem with these kinds of things.

. . .

JOAN WALSH: I just want to say to Congressman Moran there are a lot of terrific older white guys out there.  You're one of them; the Vice-President is another one.  You know, we'll be there for you.
