You can't say "midget" anymore. Jot that down with the many other references no longer allowed, even if the reference is just metaphorical and not malicious.
Rep. Hank Johnson of Georgia used the work "midget" during debate on the House floor...The kind of debate no one watches anyway and his use of the word was benign.
He was forced to apologize, as it was pointed out to him that "midget" is the new "N-word".
Sounds like some mental midgets at play, but I know how quickly the media and the victim industry will jump you for an obscure reference.
