1. Took him a freakin' year. Waiting to see if word got out, I guess.

Only apologize if you get caught (GOP motto).

3. I wonder how young some of the family members were

I would not like some drunk nude man taking off his clothes in front of my young daughter. Don't know if that was the case but just wondering.

10. typical GOP politician. He apologizes after he is found out...

He is only sorry that he got caught doing something stupid. Surprised that he didn't blame it on the alcohol, or worse, the kids that were swimming.

When are the conservatives going to stop supporting politicians who violate the very things that they are conditioned to believe in?

I think too many of them have sat in church too long.

15. A Bible Belt Republican, no less

Well, I guess he had to lett all the pent-up repressed sexuality express itself somewhere.

And now that we've had our little diversion, let's get back to Messrs. Romney and Ryan, who were explaining to us how they plan to save Medicare by gutting it.

18. no offense to those in fraternities

But this is the thoughtless sort of "KappaKappDingDong-We're-rich-above-it-all-Americans" CRAP that those baseball-cap-wearing fratboy golfer-types pull all the time. These are the country club types that drunkenly heckle the band at the hotel lounge, and frequent Hooters.

You would see a full blown firestorm in our whore press demanding his lynching.

Yet when Republicans do this, not a peep and the whores at Fox News cover it up.

31. I want a personal apology just for the mental image.

I can only imagine the horrible experience of actually witnessing that, and I think such a decision should call to question his judgment on all matters.

If someone is over 25 years old and say they went skinny dipping in front of their friends, it's not an act of playful innocence, he's a pervert who needs counseling.

When the Lord tells you to whip it out and let your Little Christian Maker bask in the gloaming of the moonlight, you gotta follow your heart. I salute you, Kevin Yoder, and your little dog, too!
