Overheard

On Glenn Beck just now:

"So what did the Senate do yesterday? War on Terror? Spending? Illegal immigration?

"No, they decided to apologize, for lynching. Apologize for a practice that ended decades ago. And people say government is inefficient. Can't see why."

Keep your expectations low and you won't be disappointed.

Let's keep our tax dollars working! I think we should have a "we're sorry for lynching" day where all the people innocent of the crime get together and apologize to all the people who weren't lynched. I think that while we're at it, we should have a "we're sorry penguins are black and white" day.

And a "we're sorry for everything" day. Since everything bad is America's fault, somehow. Just read the fliers in the UofU student union.

Let's lynch them!

Oh, wait... I'm sorry.

Well, I suppose there are other ways to legally punish those who lead our country astray.

Let me think a moment... we could always impeach a guy... according to the Constitution an impeached leader is to be barred from any office of honor or power. Maybe impeachment is worse than lynching, as it should work like a scarlet letter around the neck of and leader who has led us astray.

Now, thank goodness our country has process like impeachment that we can rely on for true justice. When our elected leaders fail us, they should know that they are shamed. They should know that their own constituents see them as criminals. We are a country of LAWS. We uphold JUSTICE. We may apologize for lynching, but certainly the names that are impeached will go down in history with shame and infamy.

We can always be sure that our government will honor the law rather than apologize for it.
