    I realize that my actions brought about the very situation that I was screaming at the park ranger about. It took me a while to come to my senses and realize the cause/effect nature of my actions. I was very stupid not to have realized this immediately and I am sorry that I am dense and that I took that out on an innocent park ranger who was working without pay, also due to my actions.

      if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

      Big deal. He apologized for his "inappropriate tone." What about the inappropriate content?!

      Apologizing for being a dick is one thing. Acknowledging his own role in the shutdown in the first place would be a real measure of self-reflection and decency for the congressman. But he's a teabagger so we can't ever expect him to embrace the reality and consequences of his participation in the dangerous and reckless behavior of House republicans.

      Apologies don't carry much weight when they come from self-righteous batshit hypocrites like Neugebauer.

    •  Did he vote to end the shutdown? (2+ / 0-)

      Or was he a holdout?

      You are right, good point. His apology would ring a lot more true if he admitted that the reason veterans were not able to visit the memorial was the shutdown he voted for. And did he even vote to end it? Doubtful but maybe he did. Either way, I saw the video and he's an asshole, this letter seems more like damage control than really getting that he was wrong.
