-- The real problem isn't what Joe Wilson, Kanye West and Serena Williams said initially. It might have been wrong, rude or even cruel, but at least it came from the heart. The real problem was their disingenuous apology. To borrow a phrase from Joe Wilson, they lied. Congress should change its rules to allow members to call the president a liar, but prohibit them from apologizing for it afterward. A similar rule could be applied by MTV and at tennis championships. In this way, honesty would might begin its return to a higher status than hypocrisy.

-- I sincerely and deeply apologize to anyone offended by the above.

-- The Senate has defunded ACORN due to the misbehavior of a few of its members. If the Senate had applied the same principle to Wall Street, there never would have been a bailout.
