Perfect 3-day Rush Rant ends in horrible “apology”

 

English: A Humpback Whale fluke.

Rush in the dog house

“For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. [Don’t lead with self-congratulation. If you’re aiming for self-pity, that’s also not the way to start an apology. After all, you’re not making the case that your remarks were the result of sleep deprivation or a medical crisis caused by overwork. Underlining that you get paid millions of dollars to sit in front of a microphone 15 hours a week does not create sympathy.]  In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. [This wasn’t an errant remark, but a three-day attack. You pretty much ran through a thesaurus’ worth of synonyms to characterize Ms. Fluke, and you make your living choosing words. An apology should not drip with insincerity.] I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke. [This is false on its face, so not a good strategy.]

MSNBC hawking commerical PRO illegal alien citizenship

I have to fast forward or put on mute the commerical that MSNBC has been running about a soldier who was granted citizenship after he was killed.  It’s a freaking job that they are paid to do.  Yes, it is one that can cause death or injury but it is mostly voluntary and a route that many illegals choose in order to gain citizenship.  It’s a freaking job going into the army, going into the navy or the marines or wherever.   This is service field just like teaching.  And teachers have an emotional burdens as well. 

I hate that commercial and wish they would stop running it.  I wonder who’s behind that thing?  MSNBC loves illegals and can’t deny that one.
