semantics

Bob Ney (R-Felon) pleaded guilty today to corruption charges as a result of his association with Jack Abramoff. He addressed the court, saying he was "taking responsibility" for his actions, and told the judge that he "got too comfortable" with the way "things were done" in Washington, and used "poor judgement."




Sorry, Bob.

"Poor judgement" is buying a Hummer when gasoline costs three dollars a gallon.

"Poor judgement" is telling your wife that, yes, those pants do make her ass look big.

"Poor judgement" is going for a five-mile run wearing shorts and a t-shirt in the cold rain.

"Poor judgement" is gorging yourself on spicy food before you go to bed.



What you did is illegally conspire to enrich yourself at the cost of the taxpayers of this country for whom you work.

You are a criminal. A common, garden-variety criminal.

yea, going into Iraq will probably come out as "poor judgement" too.

Yup. I'd appreciate their confessions and apologies more if they would quit soft-pedaling them.

What is wrong with coming out and saying, "Yes, I got greedy and thought I could get away with it."

The SOB is caught, anyway; why not fess up?

"Poor judgement, my rosy cheeks!"
