I apologize in advance for any words spoken by Senators or Representatives from my state of Maryland. They are unthinking, lockstep sheep.
They are the ones who should be apologizing - not you.
However, I do understand your embarrassment. I was born and raised in New York and used to live there and like it until the job situation and taxes drove me out. The place is overrun with slimy politicians the likes of Schumer and Cuomo who would be more at home in the Kremlin than they are the upstate. But they rule the joint and do what they want.
No apology necessary!,p>
If you think you have bad politicos we have Metro Charlie Crist, Marco-Banda de los Ochos- Rubio, (a little espanola there) and the piece de resistance— Debbie Washerwoaman-hair on fire- Schultz- Berkowitz- imam- mohammed who runs the DNC.
If any apologies are necessary I make them, bowing deeply as I do.
