Last I checked, John Kerry is not on any ballot. Don't let that stop the victim-mind Republicans, who love to get self-righteous about everything. They want an apology? Frankly, I'd like an apology from those who won the election in 2004 — and 2000 — for lying about pretty much everything.
Who did the greater insult? Bush should apologize to the families of the tens of thousands of soldiers and Marines who've been killed or wounded in his war of choice. Bush should apologize to all of us for turning away from Afghanistan, where the Taliban is again on the rise, backing al-Qaeda, while we squander all of our resources fighting and dying in an Iraqi civil war.
Getting back to senators and this year's election, I feel George Allen, who is running for office, should apologize for muscling a dissenting citizen to the ground. Once upon a time, there was a thing called free speech in this country. Now, apparently, we're all "Macacas." Thanks, George.
What a lovely bunch of folks we have running the government.
