He actually almost said it!

Remember when Fonzie just couldn't say the word "sorry"? "I'm...s-s-s-sss...I was wrrrr...."

No matter how useful it would have been to him, his ego was just so cartoonishly out of proportion he was simply unable to get the words out of his mouth. Well, apparently, The Fonz has become President now.

From AP:

A day after he stopped short of apologizing, Bush told Jordan's King Abdullah II: "I was sorry for the humiliation suffered by the Iraqi prisoners and the humiliation suffered by their families.

"I told him I was as equally sorry that people seeing those pictures didn't understand the true nature and heart of America," Bush said, standing in the Rose Garden alongside Abdullah.

That was so close! He almost did it! Can you imagine?!

Instead of being "sorry" on behalf of the United States for what American Troops did at Abu Ghraib, or "sorry" for the lack of oversight for which he is ultimately accountable as Commander-in-Chief, or "sorry" that our poorly planned policies would allow such atrocities and criminal behavior to occur in the first place, he is, instead, "sorry for the humiliation suffered."

Kinda like, "Sorry it hurt you when I punched you in the face."

Of course, he's "equally sorry" that those who had to view the pictures don't understand how good we really are in actuality, despite what they see before their eyes. Sorry you just don't get it, folks!

Will Slick Georgie escape this mess too? It's remarkable how he's been able to get by so far with everything he has up until now, so we'll see...Forget tonight's Friends --- Friday morning's testimony by Rumsfeld before Congress, is the next MUST SEE TV. Sit on it, Rummy.
