1. Apologizing to others is never required. It may be the right thing to do - or, in this case, it may look like the right thing to do - but if you say something and mean it then a walk back is often just as bad.
2. If he truly is sorry then I am not going to hammer him for waiting until today. The man is human and perhaps he needed time to do some serious soul searching (11:30 alliteration!).
I am trying to raise my boys in a manner which they would never put themselves in a position to even have to apologize, but if they do find themselves in that situation then they need to man up.
Class act, even if it’s late. Good statement by Kirk.

What Walker says - he deserves whatever political hits he takes, but in an era of faux “so sorry you are so sensitive” apologies, give him credit for a proper apology.
I still think this is all trivial — when you think of how consequential control of the senate is, only something beyond the pale (e.g., maybe credible allegations of sexual harassment and assault) can justify voting against the party you want in control.

This exemplifies the problem with partisan politics. It results in putting ideology above decency.
At this point it is only a pebble of sand on the beach, but on WTTW the other night I believe Duckworth stumbled a bit. When asked about the lawsuit, she said the judge had described it as “a nuisance” suit. I believe that statement came from her counsel, the Attorney General of Illinois. The Judge’s statement was the case was “a garden variety” case. Very minor, I know, but still.
