My final apology

My fellow Virginians,

A few hours ago I called SR Sidarth to make a final heart-felt apology. The call got off to an awkward start. I attempted to break the ice with my "really stepped in Macaca" line--but he did not laugh. And I may have mispronounced his name. (I said "Sir Sidarth," which I believe to be correct. That is how Dick has been pronouncing it--but, come to think of it, he often snickers afterwards so that could be another nickname.) Whatever the case, it is done. I am off to the fundraiser now. That was my final apology.

Feel free to show up at the fundraiser (it is OUTSIDE the beltway!) and rally in support of George and George:
Ground zero is the intersection of Mt. Vernon Memorial Hwy. and Ferry Landing Road. Parking is available at Grist Mill Park which is 200 feet from this intersection. Grist Mill Park is halfway between Mt. Vernon Estate and Woodlawn Plantation.We need as many folks as possible to show up at 3:45 pm. I am anticipating the President's arrival somewhere between 4:45 and 5:30pm. If you have Bush or Allen yardsigns please bring them.
Estates! Plantations! Ahhhh....I love Virginia so.

Never complain, never explain. Just take your medicine.

How about George calling Senator Akaka (D-HI) a macaca? I hear there are banana plantaions in Hawaii, too.

The reason that people all over the country are demanding an apology from you, sir, is that calling someone Macaca is racist as hell. This country was developed on the back of slavery and the expansion of that institution led to a civil war. After that war was a reconstruction, which was interrupted by Jim Crow laws. Fortunately we live in a society that recognizes that your comments come from someone who isn't sensitive to the realities of race in America. In America, race still seperates. There are still people saying words like Macaca, there are still people with nooses hanging in their offices. Get out of elected office, you racist.

This is why you need to apologize: "Not only is macaque apparently a French slur used to describe North Africans, Senator George Allen (Republican-Virginia) would have good reason to know it is. His mother is French Tunisian (yeah, that’s in North Africa), and Senator Allen speaks French." Why don't you get it? What you did was wrong, especially coming from someone who makes decisions that affect the lives of every person, no matter what color or nationality. You reflect poorly on our country. Be a real man and admit your obvious faults and/or resign.
