Congressman Begs Talk Show Host for Forgiveness

In Broadcasting, politics, stupidity on January 28, 2009 by Editor Z

Is this how low the Republicans are willing to go? Is this how desperate and leaderless they are? A congressman elected by a district of American citizens has to grovel and pled with a loudmouth Jacobin with a microphone, after Gingery told off Limbaugh. Where is the dignity? Pathetic! I don’t care if you are a member of congress who is liberal, centrist, conservative; Democrat, Independent, or Republican; the idea that any member of congress, a Representative whose power emanates from the people goes to a talk show host with hat in hand pleading for forgiveness is pathetic.

Now this move is obviously political. Gingrey is from a district in the state of Georgia that is staunchly conservative. And well some of his voters might not be happy with the what he said, it is humiliating that anyone would in the words of Rush Limbaugh basically “bend over, grab the ankles, and say “have your way with me”.

Here is what Gingery said earlier this week:

“I think that our leadership, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, are taking the right approach,” Gingrey said. “I mean, it’s easy if you’re Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh or even sometimes Newt Gingrich to stand back and throw bricks. You don’t have to try to do what’s best for your people and your party. You know you’re just on these talk shows and you’re living well and plus you stir up a bit of controversy and gin the base and that sort of that thing. But when it comes to true leadership, not that these people couldn’t be or wouldn’t be good leaders, they’re not in that position of John Boehner or Mitch McConnell.


And here is the apology:

Now more than ever, we need to articulate a clear conservative message that distinguishes our values and our approach from those of liberal Democrats who are seeking to move our nation in the wrong direction. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Newt Gingrich, and other conservative giants are the voices of the conservative movement’s conscience.

If this is the face of the GOP, it is a face only a mother could love.
