Apology passion play

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

Select Democrats: for booing and mocking Mr. Bush during his 2005 State of the Union address.

And while the Democrats are at it, they might also demand formal apologies from other rude and loutish individuals:

Serena Williams: for her unsportsmanlike conduct at the U.S. Open last weekend.

Kanye West: for acting like a pompous jerk when he ripped the microphone out of 19-year-old Taylor Swift’s hands in the middle of her acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards. This is not the first time Mr. West has behaved boorishly; perhaps he should stand in the well and make repeated apologies. (See Mr. Kerry, above.)

Some of these people, like Mr. Wilson, have already offered apologies for their behavior. But that doesn’t seem to matter much to the Democrats. Perhaps Mr. Wilson should stand before his colleagues with this list and hang his head in shame only when all of the others do.

Something tells me that the well of the House won’t be a very busy place.
