Charlie Black apologizes, Don Imus Doesn't...by Sybil Adelman Sage

There are those who should be apologizing to us on a daily basis, but they seem to believe that being in this administration means never having to say, "I'm sorry," choosing, instead, to later distance themselves from their hideous actions and profit by writing a book.

Others do apologize and hope to get past an unfortunate incident, as was the case yesterday with John McCain's advisor, who'd said another terrorist attack on U.S. soil would be a "big advantage" for the Republican candidate. Black also said the "unfortunate event" of the assassination of former Pakistani leader Benazir Bhutto in December 2007 "helped us."

Black's comments were the focus of much harsh criticism and disputed by McCain, whose response was, "I cannot imagine why he could say it. It's not true. I've worked tirelessly since 9/ll to prevent another attack on the United States of America. My record is very clear."

Pollsters may not yet have broken down the terrorist vote, but maybe Black's statement means we can look forward to getting those numbers as well as find out how each candidate is faring in relation to specific fears, i.e., those with anxiety disorders, paranoia, borderline personalities. Which candidate has the bi-polar vote, or do they tend to flip flop, according to mood swings?

Unlike Charlie Black, Don Imus refused to apologize for the remark he made on the air yesterday, trying to defend it as expressing sympathy for the plight of an African-American athlete and not a slur. If Imus loses his radio job, his ability to spin so deftly while his feet are being held to the fire suggests he may consider a career in politics.
