Demands For Apology, Round 2

On the way back from Fastenal I was listening to our local talk radio station, which carries ABC news. The newsgal read a story on Bush's comments on the abuse of prisoners in Iraq, and at the end, in a rather snarky tone, commented "Still no apology from President Bush."

What do these media people want from President Bush? If he were to say the words "I'm sorry", they would complain that there was an insufficient quantity of groveling and/or sincerity in it. In fact, I think that they wouldn't accept the apology unless Bush were to strip himself naked and be made to lay on the floor at the bottom of a human pyramid. But then that would make them as bad as the soldiers they rush to condemn, wouldn't it?
