File under "G"

For "Gee, y'think?"
"I am sorry that this misunderstanding happened at all, and I regret its escalation, and I apologize...there should not have been any physical contact in this incident.'' -- Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-GA), 04.06.06
And only a week after the fact. Smashing.

For future reference, Cindy, an apology's worth is inversely proportional to the amount of finger-pointing and recrimination that preceeded it. You do the math.

Are you sure that's the equation for an apology-worth values set? None of econ. books list it. It sounds right, but I always thought there was also a soul quotiant involved. Yeah, I'm almost certain in order for an apology to be "worth" something the apologist must have a soul or soul subsitute.
