Your House of Representatives (sic) has overwhelmingly voted to issue a formal apology to black Americans for the institution of slavery, and the subsequent Jim Crows laws.
This was undertaken by the bill's author some white freshman named Cohen who represents a majority black district and who, it just so happens, faces a stiff primary challenge from, yes, a black guy.
Thank gawd these public servants have time to deal with 140-year-old issues.
This is a group of people who have done nothing about anything except bail out dipwads who bought McMansions they couldn't afford by giving them your money and making the fight against global warming its top priority.
Yes, they didn't have time to do anything about $4 gas or our suffering financial pictures and the fading US dollar, but they're really focused on the Spotted Owl, and "alternative sources of power" which will never be an answer to our fuel problems. Talk about tilting at windmills.
Besides apologies mean nothing... they're after the cash. Wait for racists Sharpie and Jesse, on tonight's news to complain the House didn't go far enough.
What blacks and other left-wing diversity reporters are very good at is objective journalism (via Michelle Malkin):
“He touched me!”
So squealed a journalist attending Barack Obama’s speech yesterday to UNITY, the conglomerate of racial/ethnic identity-obsessed news associations for blacks, Asian-Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans in the media, according to the Chicago Tribune’s Swamp blog.
The UNITY event organizers were so concerned about public displays of Obamedia affection that they issued several warnings to their news professional members that the speech would be broadcast live on CNN. “Professional decorum” was encouraged. One wire story even fretted: “Can minority journalists resist applauding Obama?”
Naturally the admonition wasn't just unheeded, it was lost in the cheering and applauding as the fair and balanced group rushed the stage for autographs and photos.
Sadly, they're no different than 90-percent of all journalists, regardless of color. I think the anchors who slavishly followed in The Messiah's wake on his World Victory Tour '08 should immediately apologize to Obama for slavery... oh, and Obama's racist grandma too.
Course, I'm just bitter and over involved with the Bible and guns.
And just so the Republican party, which appears to be on life support, won't feel left out:
Thank you Ted Stevens, you horse's ass.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Ted Stevens, the nation's longest-serving Republican senator and a major figure in Alaska politics since before statehood, was indicted Tuesday on seven felony counts of concealing more than a quarter of a million dollars in house renovations and gifts from a powerful oil contractor that lobbied him for government aid.
Stevens, 84, is the first sitting U.S. senator to face federal indictment since 1993. He declared, "I am innocent of these charges and intend to prove that."
You'd think that he's probably remain in office, but his party's leadership won't stand for it, unlike the party of William Jefferson who couldn't explain the $900,000 in cash he had in his home freezer.
And speaking of corrupt... that jackass running Israel, PM Ehud Olmert will be gone by dinner time.
Good riddance... he's the best prime minister Hezbollah ever had.
