29. Isn't this more about killing filibusters than
being sorry about lynching? They want to create the sentiment that 'filibusters are bad, see?'

Hey Landrieu, this bunch of fascist bastards in the senate do not have good intentions.

Like the cabal of murderers in the white house (and John Wayne) they see an apology as a sign of weakness. They will turn your good intentions back around on you as a weapon.
