If there’s one thing that pisses me off more than just about anything else, it’s someone who takes a stand for what’s right in our fucked-up society – and then apologizes for doing so.
The Department of Spineless, Wimp-Assed Bastards has delivered up one such individual on a silver platter – and it’s the Congresscritter I just got through defending a couple posts below.
That’s right, Denizens. Tommy-boy DeLay has caved in to whatever pressure was being brought to bear on him for what he said about Terri Schiavo and the out-of-control excuse-for-a-court system.
House Majority Leader Tom DeLay apologized Wednesday for using overheated rhetoric on the day Terri Schiavo died, but refused to say whether he supports impeachment of the judges who ruled in her case.
DeLay backtracked as White House spokesman Scott McClellan said President Bush considers the Texas Republican, who is battling ethics allegations, a friend, but suggested that the majority leader is more of a business associate than a social pal.
“I think there are different levels of friendship with anybody,” McClellan said.
There are different levels of cowardice too, McClellan. Your boss demonstrated the worst kind of same when he bended his knee to the fucking swamp rat George Greer – a level of spinelessness matched only by Shrubya’s brother, Jebbie.
Now Tommy-boy DeLay has just about matched that particular brand of wussiness by apologizing for daring to speak the truth the other day about the Backstabbing Bench Bastards who helped murder Terri.
At a crowded news conference in his Capitol office, DeLay addressed remarks he made in the hours after the brain-damaged Florida woman died on March 31. “I said something in an inartful way and I shouldn’t have said it that way and I apologize for saying it that way,” DeLay told reporters.
Shortly after Schiavo’s death, Delay said it represented a failure of the legal system. DeLay’s statement also said, “The time will come for the men responsible for this to answer for their behavior.”
If that’s the way you feel, Tommy-Boy, then I couldn’t give a flying fuck if you should be tossed out of Congress on your yellow can. We need congressfolk in Washington who aren’t afraid to stand up for what’s right, even if it doesn’t jibe with poll numbers sautéed by the NY Slimes.
And if you don’t have the balls to stand up for what’s right, perhaps you should step aside for someone who does.
