Fair CAI readers, I must apologize for my latest absence.  However, I believe you will forgive me for attending to the birth of my little girl.

That said, it is sad that I must burst back upon the scene to comment on the latest politician to defame themself and their position and then offer the flimsiest of apologies.  I speak of Michael Duvall, the Californian assemblyman who resigned after his sexually-explicit gab was caught on microphone during an assembly session.  Here’s part of his apology:

I am deeply saddened that my inappropriate comments have become a major distraction for my colleagues in the Assembly, who are working hard on the very serious problems facing our state,” he said in a statement posted on his website. “I have come to the conclusion that it would not be fair to my family, my constituents or to my friends on both sides of the aisle to remain in office. Therefore, I have decided to resign my office, effective immediately, so that the Assembly can get back to work.

So noble of him to not want to interfere with the “serious” work our state politicians are doing.  But the beauty is in how his apology is not that he is sorry he is a slime-bag who was cheating on his wife and bragging about it while he was working, but how sorry he is this has turned into a distraction.   I have no illusions that humans are perfect, and politicians are most certainly human, but this constant state of scandals is alone a great reason to wish for a small government.

duvallAnd I’m sorry, but for this blowhard to brag about his affair is too much for me.  Look at yourself dude, were it not for the fact that you are in charge of some money that you can give away to lobbyists, the closest you would get to any tail would be the plus-size models in your wife’s JC Penny intimate’s catalog.  You are a blight to the GOP and I look forward to your future career of managing the McDonald’s near your house.
