When Saying You’re Sorry Isn’t Enough

Some people can’t do anything right.

I’m sure that’s what Senator George Allen is thinking (or at least thinking about his speech writers). The Washington Post has an article showing that now even the Sons of Confederate Veterans are a bit grumpy with the good ol’ Senator.

“What I was slow to appreciate and wish I had understood much sooner,” Allen told a black audience last month, “is that this symbol [the confederate battle flag] . . . is, for black Americans, an emblem of hate and terror, an emblem of intolerance and intimidation.”

Now, even that statement is getting him into trouble.

“He’s apologizing to others, certainly he should apologize to us as well,” said B. Frank Earnest Sr., the Virginia commander of the confederate group at a news conference. “We’re all aware, ourselves included, of the statements that got him into this. The infamous macaca statement. He’s using our flag to wipe the muck from his shoes that he’s now stepped in.”

Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! – Sorry. Too good for further commentary.
