Excerpted from The Blaze:

Did Santorum actually say something so out of character and patently offensive? A slew of websites (especially Gawker) seem to think so.

Santorum Campaign senior strategist John Brabender spoke with The Blaze this morning and denied it was anything:

“We are not going to dignify any question on this matter. It is such an absurdity for anyone to try and bring race into this campaign. Anyone who does, should be ashamed of themselves.”

This isn’t the first time Santorum has faced questions about catching himself during a speech. In January, many accused him using the term “black” in a blanket manner in a speech about welfare recipients. Back then, he said “I was starting to say one word and I sort of came up with a different word and then moved on.”
