"Shocked and saddened"

The drumbeat of official responses from our political leaders all contain the same three words. I've heard it over and over and over today.

IF I HEAR ONE MORE CANNED GODDAM PRESS RELEASE FROM ANOTHER ELECTED OFFICIAL SAYING THEY ARE "SHOCKED AND SADDENED," I AM QUITE SIMPLY GOING TO FUCKING LOSE IT.

YOU'RE "SHOCKED AND SADDENED" WHEN YOUR DOG GETS RUN OVER IN THE ROAD.

IT'S A BY-ROTE RESPONSE, LIKE A KICK WHEN THE DOCTOR CHECKS YOUR REFLEXES.

"SHOCKED AND SADDENED" IS NOT ENOUGH.

Not anymore.
