But it's not just republicans any longer apologizing for offending the real leader of the GOP. Now Democrats have gotten into the act. My own Congressman, Alan Grayson (D-FL):
"I’m sorry Limbaugh called for harsh sentences for drug addicts while he was a drug addict. I’m also sorry that he’s bent on seeing America fail. And I’m sorry that Limbaugh is one sorry excuse for a human being."
The DCCC has their own website to help you apologize if you want to get into the act as well: http://www.dccc.org/content/sorry
I feel real bad for the rethugs in Congress. Your base worships the Boss Hog of the GOP while the rest of America thinks he's a hypocritical, bigoted blowhard.
So if you are a rethug with a conscience, you have to hold your tongue and wince while he calls for America to fail, makes fun of Parkinson's disease or attacks minorities and women. And if someone asks you what you think of him, you have to dance like crazy. ("No, no no, he's not our leader, he's just... a god" "I think what he says is repugnant, but I just am not allowed to disagree with anything he says...please don't hurt me Rush")
Better to have America hate you than your base. But that is what happens when your base is made up of small-minded nuts.
Am I the only one REALLY enjoying this?
Update: My favorite quote (on a tagline of a fellow Kossack): "When republicans were in charge, dissent was treason. When Democrats are in charge, treason is the ONLY strategy!" --good luck with that
