Ms. Black has, according to her spokesperson, reprimanded Goforth - both verbally and a written warning. No apologies from me - THIS WOMAN SHOULD BE FIRED! Her excuses are a sham and lack credibility. Her apology was a disgrace by blaming her mistake of sending to the wrong list - this woman should not be in a position to email anyone from a politically based office ever again.
This email was also sent with a disclaimer: that it was paid for and sent by the Republican party. Of course the powers that be in TN, have immediately disavowed that statement.
There was another Republican activist in either NC or SC, who made a reference on his Facebook page, after noting that some gorillas escaped from a local zoo - and then referring to Michelle Obama and her lineage. What word is worse than "disgrace?" Apologies are not enough - there should be consequences when people use their positions to propagate this vile bigoted attitude.
I may not be 100% happy with some of the back-pedaling that our President has shown, but it isn't about his color or ethnicity. I wasn't raised in a bigoted home or atmosphere - and made sure my children were raised the same.
All these racist episodes have made me so mad I could chew nails. I should hope that these individuals are dealt with more severely than has been shown to date.
As for the feud between David Letterman and the Wasilla Babe...my views are rather simple. When I first heard the joke, I thought he was referring to Bristol - because who the hell even remember Willow? Be that as it may, he did cross a line that required a simple apology. Palin and her spokesperson both blew this way out of proportion with the "raping of a 14 year old" and pedophile references to Letterman.
Considering Palin cannot utter one single grammatically correct sentence, let alone an entire speech - I was actually having a hard time connecting all the dots. It has to be funny to watch me, because when I hear Palin open her mouth, I cock my head like a bewildered dog. More often than not followed by a "did she say what I though she said?" What a goof. This narcissistic woman has one goal alone - to stay in the public eye and garner attention.
In accepting Letterman's apology, she went off on a tangent, including the men and women who are fighting to keep us safe, blah, blah, blah. WTF does all that have to do with just saying "apology accepted?" As for the idiots that think they can champion Letterman's firing from the show...dream on. That will never happen - he is also protected by free speech and apologies have been made - end of subject.
I should hope that all the election problems in Iran could be salvaged and done democratically and properly - but I don't foresee that happening. McCain has spoken out and stated that Obama should be declaring this and that about the election process in Iran - essentially pulling a Cheney and wanting to start another war. Scary thought huh?
All righty then...I have some stuff I need to get to, so I shall return....later..........
