  1. Davis is only apologizing to save face, not because she changed her mind or didn’t really believe what she said. I hate when politicians apologize for what they truly believe. I’d rather have a frank asshole than a pandering weasel.

    I don’t really agree. She’s not really apologizing for what she believes. She’s apologizing for the outburst, which is completely understandable (that she’s apologizing, not that it happened). I don’t expect elected representatives to hold the same beliefs I do, and I don’t expect them to check their beliefs at the door. I do expect them to be respectful of those that don’t share their beliefs, and that is what Davis failed to do in this situation. That is worth an apology.

  3. JSug, that’s what I mean. Her apology is meaningless to me because she is still a bigot. So what that she apologized for yelling. I don’t care that she yelled. I care that her views are abhorrent.
