I want to apologize to everyone here on MM for my idiotic, stupidly childish, gravely immature outburst on Sophia's blog the other night.  I can offer no excuse for behaving like such an a**h**e because there is no excuse for my behavior.  I can only say to all of you that I am deeply, deeply sorry for any offense or pain I caused any of you and I hope you can forgive me.  I want to apologize, too, for taking so long to get this blog posted.  I've been having internet connection problems and could not get on MM until a couple of hours ago.

It may not be appropriate to say this here, but I would think that at least some of you would appreciate knowing that I have privately apologized to those I most deeply offended before I took to writing this public apology.  Doing things in that order seemed the right thing to do.

For the record, as briefly as I can do it, I would like to say that I have admired Colin Powell since his days as Secretary of State under Bush.  The more I saw of him, the more I thought he was an outstanding statesman; head and shoulders above anyone else out there in the political arena.  When we thought he might run for president on the Republican ticket, I hoped and prayed he would.  I thought he would bring a dignity back to the Oval Office that we haven't seen there in a long time.  I knew I probably would not agree with all his policies, but I thought he would be just what our country needed.  I was most disappointed when he chose not to run.  When he declared his support of McCain, I was at least glad that he was probably going to sway a lot of people over to the McCain camp so we could keep a Marxist out of the Oval Office.  When he then switched his support to Obama, I felt personally betrayed.  I could not believe that this extraordinarily thoughtful, intelligent patriot would stand behind Obama.  This, then, Powell's support of Obama, was the one and only source of my fury.  I still think Powell is far more presidential than any one on the scene today.  And for everything else he has done, I still admire him enormously.

Once again, my most sincere apologies to everyone, and thank you very much to any of you who still have enough respect left for me to even bother reading a blog that I wrote. 

Pat

Pat, don't you know by now that the people on here like you so much and understand you are passionate about the way you feel? I know I sometimes come across in a harsh way but that's just me. Don't be so hard on yourself sweetie.


Thank you, dear Elaine.  I am currently resting on soft cushions and feeding myself peeled grapes.  [LOL]

WTF is this? What are you apologizing about? Did you hurt someone's feelings? Boo Hoo,


Yes, I did, Irocas.  Boohooing?  No.   Apologizing, yes.

Awwww Curious!  I think you part of MM site too.  you right, I tried to stay away from some subject but I also try to make it cheerful for everyone.........people might think of me, "you little thing you!"  but trust me I am hiding my intellect on purpose.......LOL  say what you want, that is what I believe.......don't change.



Thanks Duchesse.  I only think of you as "little" in the way that us old fogies use the term endearingly to refer to folks much younger than ourselves.  Keep on smiling........

Quoting SassnClass

Ahh I wish I could add miracle worker to my profile but there's no way Colin will ever run! His wife suffers from depression and shuns the spotlight. She did not want him to run. You have to commend him for putting his family first before any type of political career....He mentioned to the audience that he would not seek Presidency. But at least he's staying productive and focused on supporting communities across the country...



Now that you mention the depression, I vaguely remember hearing something about that.  How awfully ironic--and sad.

I haven't been on this site for weeks and weeks. I tried to find the original blog. Powell is ass. I've never been a fan of his ever. He supported Obama because he's a black man and wanted to be part of history. Or did he like so many others believe the lies Obama had to tell go get elected? And I will not apologize for my comments.

Quoting Curious2078

Thank you, Holly. Thank you so very much. And, yes, expressing how we feel freely is the great thing about our country. Being a jackass like I've been is abuse of that right. I have not heard of "America's Promise." I will have to Google that one and see what's up. And now that I no longer have 2 tons of remorse on my shoulders, I can breathe easily to ask you: Somewhere I just read that his wife didn't want him to run for president. Since you have an "IN" with Powell, so to speak, could you get to his wife and get her to change her mind??? [Kidding, of course. But it is a nice fantasy, all the same.] Pat

Pat don't apologize, you wanted to say something and said it. 



Hello, Duchesse

Thank you for your vote of confidence, Little Lady With the Lovely Smile.  One thing I would like to add, though, if I may.  You are right that I had something to say----but in my offensive post, I did NOT say it.  I said something entirely different.  What was on my mind, what I wanted to say, what I needed to say, I've said on this blog.  Which took a hell of a lot more thought and time.  Just goes to show you what being lazy and taking super duper shortcuts can cost you--and cost others in the process.

You're very right about all of us having something to say and going ahead and saying it.  But, based on my recent experience--one tough lesson to swallow, but now it's part of my blood and bones--we--I--need to be sure that I'm not so thoughtless with my remarks that I actually misrepresent myself and my thoughts and in the process quite needlessly slam my cleated boots down on other people's toes.

Keep smiling, "girl."  You're lots of fun to have here in Blogland.  Thanks again for your post.

Quoting Conyersguy

AZ,  I was VERY tongue in cheek when I suggested I had never made a mistake. :)  I even went to the trouble of misspelling 'good" in "good work" to accent the satire.  So, now I've officially made another mistake........I assumed I was good at satire.:):):) 

.

My intent was to thank Pat for her admission.  We ALL need to look in the mirror.  Sometimes it really isn't everyone else.....It's US !!  :)  I certainly don't exclude myself from that possibility.  Just recently I overstepped in an attempt at humor and apologized to Tink.  And rightfully so. 

.

But, don't worry.  I'll do something else stupid again soon, and you can remind me.:):):):)  Just be gentle. I cry easily.:):):)



I promise not to make you cry....LOL!

Pat, Pat, Pat.....what have you got yourself into? :-)  Just kidding, my friend.....I read your apology and didn't know what you were talking about, so I'm not one of those offended. I, too, was disappointed when Colin decided not to run....would have been a great ticket, speaking from my conservative views.....big grin. Anyway....takes guts to send out a public apology....and you have what it takes. It's all good.



Thank you, gracious lady.
