How bout firing the bastard?
A few years ago all the news stories started saying "And no word yet as to whether the accused man apologized", "And he didn't even apologize" and "He did say he apologizes and that goes a long way".
Applied to criminals and Dems in trouble (do I repeat myself?). Never to a conservative----ever.
That columnist forgot to say he apologizes AND has a handwritten note from his mother saying he wasn't feeling well when he wrote his stuff.
