8. Absolutely not. Brownback IS an asshole. Corbett's an asshole. Toomey's an asshole.
Santorum's, well, worse than an asshole. All of the GOP wannabes are assholes. Cantor's an asshole. The orange boner is an asshole.

There. I said it, and I will NOT apologize. She's an adult. There's no way she should be put in a position of being forced to apologize.

Somebody give Brownback a copy of the US Constitution with the 1st Amendment highlighted.

:grr:

10. No there is not an age limit to the right to free speech. Although I
assume there might be a lot of parents who are keeping that secret from the kids.

11. I love how she said she wouldn't apologize because it would be an insincere apology.
1. It reiterates the opinion that Brownback sucks.
2. It slams the insincere apologies that are automatic in politics whenever anyone's feelings are hurt.

14. Not only No, But HELL, NO!
A public figure doesn't get apologies from disgruntled constituents. It is Brownback who should apologize for being the disgusting failure he is.
