Sorry About That

It's been a big week for apologies from politicians:
  • The Senate apologized to lynching survivors for never having passed an anti-lynching law
  • Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) apologized for saying "Adios, mofo," at the end of a television interview -- while his mike was still on
  • Sen Dick Durbin (D-IL) apologized for statements that sounded like he was comparing US guards to prison camp guards under Hitler, Stalin, and Pol Pot
  • Rep John Hostettler (R-IN) apologized for saying Democrats were "demonizing Christians" in debate over a religious tolerance amendment to a Defense bill
If "Love means never having to say you're sorry," this is just more proof of how there's no love lost between politicians, the media, and the public these days. (Watching Washington)
