I'm Not Surprised They're Surprised

First, I am incensed that the whole Michael Richards thing seems to be getting swept under the rug, toned down, or whatever by the media and by Hollywood.

But something that keeps coming up in my mind is as follows: A lot of people are saying that they're somehow upset that his non-apology botched apology unheartfelt apology outward-deflecting apology - wasn't good enough. Of course it wasn't. That's because it was....

A Statement.

This will come as a surprise to many, but the media, smarmy souless leftist politicians, and the do-gooder Hollywood that people put so much faith in, is full of it.

They tell you what they think is appropriate.

To expect anything above and beyond that is living in a dream world. Expecting contrition from Richards is like expecting true remorse from Doyle or Feingold. And think about it. When was the last time you heard someone truly say, from their heart, "I'm sorry" and meant it? And they didn't say it simply to end the tension and get on with things?

That's what we are seeing here. "Let's get on with it."

One last element of this can't go unnoticed. The moral fabric of this society has deteriorated to the point that the lawyeristic, defense approach is the answer to everything. It's easier to some of these folks although it takes a lot longer. Longer than being a human being and actually feeling remorse about your action instead of remorse about others reactions.

The two hecklers now say they'll be quiet and go away if Richards writes them a big enough check.
