Sometimes a Half-Hearted Apology is Enough

Following up on WLS’s post about David “Pimped Out” Shuster of MSNBC, Hillary Clinton has written the network that:

“… no temporary suspension or half-hearted apology is sufficient.”

That’s interesting because, after the Lewinsky affair, Hillary apparently thought her husband’s half-hearted apologies were good enough.

Huckabee wins Kansas

CNN and Fox News have projected Huckabee as the winner in Kansas. There are also primaries or caucuses today in Nebraska, Louisiana, Washington State, and the Virgin Islands.

One of the drawbacks of knowing who the GOP nominee will be is that it takes the suspense out these events. On the other hand, the Democratic race is still interesting. This Pajamas Media link indicates some places are seeing a large turnout for Obama. We’ll see what the election results show.
