Dems Demand Santorum Apology

Apologies are hard to come by from the republican party. They are never wrong. Richard Nixon wasn't a crook. Gerald Ford was a legally appointed president. Ronald Reagan is the greatest American who ever lived. Newt Gingrich is a loving husband and father. Ann Coulter is a thinking person. Dr. Laura is a doctor. No lies ever emanate from the wrong-wing.

That part of the Massachusetts congressional delegation that still believes in the Constitution, open dialog, and thinking, have demanded an apology from Senator Santorum, of Pennsylvania. Santorum's remarks about the institutions of higher learning and the so-called 'cultural liberalism' of Boston being the reason so many boys are raped by pederasts have moved the representatives and senators of that state to confront the republican whacko.

See my original post here.

The response from Santorum's office, predictably, is that he is very sad that Massachusetts officials "have decided to politicize [the] comments"!

Santorum makes outrageous political remarks about an entire region and its citizens, and then is "sad" when confronted with it?

This is the tactic used by the wrong-wing ever since the advent of the Reagan Reaction. No dialog, no admittance of guilt or stupidity, just blame others for your mistakes and act as if you've done nothing wrong.

Santorum is an embarrassment to humanity.

I am happy that Ted Kennedy, Bill Delahunt and other Massachusetts politicians are standing-up to this sort of hate-mongering.

"Gerald Ford was a legally appointed president."

Of course, that's absolutely right. Gerald Ford was a legally appointed president.

Do you say that he wasn't legally appointed?
