Contrite, Combative Moran on the Ropes
The Washington Post -- front page even ^ | 3/17/03 | Chris L. Jenkins and R.H. Melton

Posted on 03/17/2003 7:30:32 AM PST by Gothmog

"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."

Snip

"'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.

Moron.

Outlaw: "You don't leave a man much, Marshall!"

Matt Dillon: "Mister, you didn't bring much with ya."

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.

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 were children.
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.
