“Yeah, Dad, I did hit him, but not that hard.”
In February, after we at the Tennessee GOP released a light-hearted YouTube video gently mocking Barack Obama’s wife Michelle Obama for her statement that she hadn’t always been proud of her country (until her husband started doing well in the polls, coincidentally), the national media and Democrats went bonkers, claiming we’d “attacked” Mrs. Obama, and even accusing the ad of being racist.
Light-hearted? Gently mocking?
Bwah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
Listen, I know you don’t give two shits about what I think, but Bill, if you’re going to do something, own it. Don’t do it and then spend the next six months trying to spin it as being something other than what it was. It makes you look weak and, if a person can be both petulant and contrite, you sound petulant and contrite, like you’re not sorry that you did it, you’re just sorry you got caught and that it got out of hand.
I think very little good about Campfield, but in this regard, you could take a lesson from him. Own your actions and either apologize like a grown up or don’t apologize at all. This “no, really, I was just misunderstood and look, they did the same thing, too” crap doesn’t cut it.
I’m more and more convinced you’re off your game. This is just another piece of evidence to that end.
So, come on, you can tell us. Who’s trying to reign you in?
