Episode 51 – I’m Sorry, So Sorry

cropped-politalk-banner-770x140.jpg

We want to apologize up front for this episode. No, literally. Because in this one, Jeff and Glenn dive deeper into the issue of political apologies. Why are they done? What is their purpose? Why do innocent family members get dragged out into public? And maybe most important, do they actually change anything (I mean, afterall, they are apologizing for a reason…).  Our co-hosts not only look at the recent apology by Congressman Joe Wilson, but also President Bill Clinton, Senator David Vitter, Senator John Edwards, Governor Mark Sanford and Governor Eliot Spitzer. Always entertaining and informative, it’s PoliTalk, your weekly political podcast.

  1. I was singing your praises tonight. Hopefully that will increase your audience by 1, at least. Sorry it’s only 1 friend!

  2. I’d understand if you don’t address my question but why is religion getting a pass in general or more recently on issues better left to science.

    Just for Glenn I’ll beat up the Catholic church some.

    How about the official position of condom use in Africa, especially in cases of known HIV/AIDS infections?

    How about Bush Pardoning Ratzinger?

    This deserves some background information if you’ll allow me.

    Documents were uncovered at the Vatican to legally implicate the current pope in an effort to cover up the sexual molestation of minors. These were cases happening in the US during the time of ‘Prefect’ Ratzinger. Did the dirt on his fellow man or the ability to protect rapists from prosecution help make him perfect? I wonder…

    I think Locke deserves an apology for what we’ve let happen to our government.

  3. Daniel, your last name isn’t Brown is it?

    So, if you are going to raise a charge like you do here, please provide some links to your sources. “Documents were uncovered” sounds a lot like the kind of argument the Birthers use. If you are going to make that charge, support your argument… What document? Where is it? Can we see it?

    I, for one, would like to see more information regarding that, but until I do, it is just hearsay.

  4. First of all, let me point out the fact that he was pardoned, hard to call it ‘birther’ if the president had to pardon him…

    So, lets get to the fact checking. The document is called Crimen sollicitationis: Find more information on it including the physical scan (it is in latin) @

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crimen_sollicitationis_(document)

    The documents were uncovered due to insider tips from the priest interviewed in the documentary “Deliver us from evil”, watch it.

    More information about this is @ http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/article-23369148-details/Pope+'led+cover-up+of+child+abuse+by+priests'/article.do

    Information from a separate BBC special about this: http://www.scribd.com/doc/15666885/Pope-Caught-Orchestrating-Church-Pedophile-Cover-Up

    Also, what about the position against condoms in Africa?

    Thanks

  5. Funny how most people don’t apologize until they get caught. They’re just sorry they got caught. Starting to listen regularly guys! Great job!
