Lt. Governor Knoll Update
Here’s an update from the Lt. Gov. of Pennsylvania’s insult added to injury that I posted about on Saturday.
She appologized. Wait now, it ain’t what you think.
PITTSBURGH — After being criticized for attending a Marine’s funeral, Lt. Gov. Catherine Baker Knoll sent a public, written apology to the man’s widow on Monday.
She was criticized for making a stupid idiotic mistake.
Family members said Knoll came to the funeral uninvited, passed out business cards and made a remark about the government being against the war.
See, but wait Rendell is finally getting in to it.
Gov. Ed Rendell said Sunday that the state does not have a position on the war, and it supports the men and women who are fighting. He also said written apologies would be sent to the family.
So, have you lefties learned anything from this?
Goodrich’s sister, Rhonda, told Channel 4 Action News that Knoll called and left an apology on her voice mail, along with her phone number and an invitation to call back.
Did she expect to get a call back? Was she hoping to hear a ‘don’t worry about it’? Or, did she want to complete the non-appology appology?
On Monday afternoon, Knoll’s office released a letter of apology to Goodrich’s wife.
“Sgt. Goodrich’s service was beyond the call of duty. If my regard for his family’s grief was seen another way, it is thoroughly regrettable. The fact that you have been offended deserves and receives my most profound apology,” the letter said.
The words “I’m sorry” not there. No admission of wrong doing. There is the classic Lefty tact of complaining you got offended when they were just beingh themselves, when in fact they were making a true arse of themselves. Has a Lefty ever just plain said that they messed up, said an incredibly stupid and hurtful thing, and promissed to never let it happen again? Will it ever happen?
Lt. Governor, you need to just say: My words again
I’m sorry. I’m an idiot. I thought that I was in my usual insulated liberal elitist group of pacifists, and I thought saying what I said would make you feel better.
Lord knows that’s what I’d want to hear.But I was wrong, and I should have never said those things. I am sorry for bringing further pain to an already troublesome time, and also for infringing on your final goodbyes with your husnband.
It is that simple. Don’t be all Clinton-like, admit you screwed up and that you were wrong.
There is another way, I supose. A truely brave Lefty could stand up and say that they did mean it. But, would they have the courage to be true to their America hating heart?
My guess is not.
