"After the worst week of his often tumultuous 20 years in politics, a tearful and weary U.S. Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D) returned yesterday to the Northern Virginians who know him best, trying yet again to reestablish himself with voters after suggesting that Jews were pushing the nation into war with Iraq."
"'When you go through a week like I've been through, you can handle that. But when it comes to family, that's when it hits you,' Moran said as he broke into sobs. The crowd in the Patrick Henry Elementary School cafeteria gave Moran a standing ovation, but he said he could not introduce his friend, U.S. Rep. Robert C. Scott (D-Va.), as the keynote speaker 'because I'm losing it.'"

Contrite? He never said he was sorry any more than clinton did. He said he regreted that the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy twisted his words.

awwwwwwwwwh! Heck I hate he feels bad about being a bigot for getting caught saying what he meant only to be thinking. Boo Hoo Hoo!
"You don't leave a man much, Marshall!"

(Romans 1:18-32 — to a 4/4 beat!)
Bawlin' and Brawlin' - the public career of Jim Moran. If he's not threatening an eight year old kid from the projects, he's beating (or threatening to beat) his wife, older political opponents, or anonymous challengers. When he's not brawlin', he's bawlin' over being caught having done or said something stupid and offensive.

Moran said as he broke into sobs.
He doesn't have to break into sobs. He IS an SOB.

What an absolute pig! How can a guy like that look at himself in the mirror each day and not have an absolute self-loathing hatred? I wondered the same thing about Clinton and a number of other Democrat liars and moral-scumbags (Torricelli, most of Clinton's cabinet, most of the Democrat "leadership", McDermott and the Bagdad 3 with Bonior). Look up "moral decadance" in the dictionary and you'll see a reference to the Democrat party.
It reminds one of child molesters when they get caught - claim to have a dysfunction and need counseling and/or claim to have been victims themselves when they
What they are really sorry for is getting caught in the act.
This jerk has been out of control for years and no one has held him accountable - til now.
The Age of Clinton may indeed by fading into the sunset, now that the good guy in the white hat (who says what he means and means what he says) rode in to town.

I agree. The rat party needs to be banned and outlawed and put on the list of **** organizations you swear not to know anything about when filling out govt. forms.
