Wow.....sounds like there is no compassion for people who have made mistakes in their lives.
It is an honor to be in the presence of those who never made an mistake. Thank you for being perfect.
flamer........I am sorry you were a democrat.
So we are not entitled to have an opinion when somebody fouls up?
Look, maybe Mel was honest, but I can't help but to be skeptical. Mel is going to have to do a lot more than just talk.
A alcoholic who takes a drink is not making a "mistake."
He is playing with fire intentionally, and he knows it when he takes that drink.
He deserves every bit of the contempt that will be heaped upon him over this. The man has six children, he endangered other people, said some horrible things about Jews, and is lucky he didn't have his head taken off for what he said to, and about, the deputies.
The "mistake" was driving drunk. In this he is no different than Patches Kennedy.
The Jewhatred is something else altogether. In this he is no different than your basic garden variety Neo-Nazi.
Oh please, how inane. Holding someone to account for their behavior is not acting like you have no flaws.
Making a mistake is bumping another person's car or knocking over somebody's drink. Mel is 50 years old. Sure, he accidentally got blithering drunk and drove like a nut, endangering lives the whole way.
I found it pretty refreshing that he took full responsibility for his behavior. He admitted his guilt and didn't try to blame it on anything or anyone but himself. Pretty rare these days.
