"Anime is a prime example that two nukes just wasn't enough," NH State Rep. Nick Levasseur said on Facebook. Now he is apologizing for the statement, which "could be deemed as insensitive to Japanese culture," according to the local news.

Odd that they've chosen the "making fun of anime is insensitive" angle, instead of the significantly more obvious "don't joke about killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people" angle. Levasseur, a Democrat, has since apologized.
