No Apolgies Needed (Updated)

Drudge is flashing ultra-big headlines because President Bush makes John Green, an influential ABC News producer, sick. It says so right there in a private email that Green sent.

So what? Green isn’t allowed to have personal opinions about public figures? Green isn’t allowed to share those feelings with his friends? I’m hoping Green deals with this situation with something resembling a backbone--not because I agree with him, but because this isn’t news and it isn’t relevant.

Bush makes Green want to puke. So the hell what? Unless there were some tidbit of information that painted Green in a bad light professionally--that he was intentionally killing stories that might show the Pres. in a good light, for instance--then he should stand up and say that he has a right to express his opinions.

But in this age of the fake mea culpa, I wonder what road he’ll take?

A friend of Green’s at ABC says Green is mortified by the email. “John feels so badly about this email. He is a straight shooter and great producer who is always fair. That said, he deeply regrets the sentiment expressed in the email and the embarrassment it causes ABC News.”

If I were Green, I would issue a press release saying that no apologies were necessary, that no explanation was needed, and that the only black mark in this whole story goes to Drudge for meaninglessly printing a person’s private emails.

But, certainly, no apologies.

Read the story.

Update: For example, I can’t stand Roy Moore. He makes me want to puke. So there.

Ugh. I don’t know what leaves me feeling more ill, that Roy Moore quote or the comments section of that link you posted. And these people feel they can determine who is sick and who isn’t? I don’t think so!

I think what scares me is the thought that Moore might actually be influential with a great number of people.

If you click all the way through to the original story at Hammer of truth you’ll find someone claiming to be Jonathan Phelps of ‘God Hates Fags’ infamy posting there.

I’m wondering if it was really him. I did think it was “funny” (in that not-so-funny way) given that my last post was at least in part about Fred Phelps.

That freaky little family is really getting around right now, isn’t it?

As an escapee from the Great Backwards State of Alabama, allow me to say that “yes, he is, with many.”

I agree completely. I said similar things about Bill Clinton when he was president and I certainly wouldn’t have apologized for it. Still haven’t.

Great Backwards State of Alabama

You mean it’s really “Amabala”?

You mean it’s really “Amabala”?

I think that actually counts as a valid spelling on the high school exit exam, truth be told.

Hell, Andy—if it has seven letters and three of them are “A”, they graduate you summa cum laude.

With honors, if you throw in an extra “A” or two.
