Mika Brzezinski Apologized. Move On.

In the words of Elsa, "Let it go."

Mika Brzezinski made me laugh out loud yesterday. She referred to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo a “wannabe dictator’s butt boy.” I think it was absolutely hilarious, but it is also admittedly not something for polite company on national television about the nation's Secretary of State.

She has thoroughly apologized and did so fairly quickly after having said that.

The left, in particular, has a real tendency of refusing to let go of anything, refusing to let people move beyond their worst deed, and refusing to accept apologies. I know there are people on the right who say we should hold the left to their own rules. I am a conservative and a Christian. I do not want to play by the left's rules. I will not operate as a progressive.

I believe in grace and I believe in accepting apologies. I believe this really is a nothing burger of a story and everyone should move on. To the extent you cannot bring yourself to move on after Mika's apology, that speaks great volumes about you and very little about Mika Brzezinski.

For the Left/Progressive/Modern Liberal/Praetorian Guard Media an apology is ONLY acceptable for them and them alone.

A couple of points:

(1) Erick says I believe in grace and I believe in accepting apologies but he still has trouble accepting the possibility that Donald Trump has moved beyond his years of personal degeneracy and still holds his past sins against him. Perhaps he is holding out for a personal apology from Trump. Or the spectacle of a public mea culpa and pleading for forgiveness. I don't think you can believe in grace only in the presence of an apology. I think the way a person lives, and continues to act as time goes on, is a lot more important than a few words under pressure.

(2) To the extent you cannot bring yourself to move on after Mika's apology, that speaks great volumes about you and very little about Mika Brzezinski Nonsense. Mika has apologized for one single statement of vicious hatred and dishonesty designed to smear a good man, which is only one of so many I have lost count.

OK, give her a point or two for that one single apology to that one single man she slimed in this one single example. But spare us the sanctimonious judgement of claiming that there is something wrong with people who don't find this isolated apology to be very significant, in the overall tapestry of Mika's utterly insane and vile comments and accusations.

When she apologizes to everyone she has slandered and for every vicious lie she has told, then I might be more impressed by her acknowledgement that her characterization of Pompeo was wrong.

And that leads to the question---is that what she said? I avoid Joey and Mika like the plague, because I find them so disgusting both as pundits and as human beings I only hear something every now and then about the latest disgusting lie they have told. If Mika did only apologize to gays in general, what did she apologize FOR? For implying that male homosexual acts were not acceptable? For implying that Pompeo was a member of the "gay community"? Those would hardly qualify as apologies to Pompeo for asserting that his relationship with the president was degenerate and sexual.

I agree, but do you feel the same about Trump?

I get your point but I'm confused. You thought it was hilarious?
