Cornyn: Still clueless

Obviously, I gave John Cornyn too much credit when I said he'd "apologized" for his stupid and offensive remarks about threats to judges, since he clearly doesn't understand what he did wrong.

"The lesson I learned is that Washington is a very tough political environment and if people can take what you say out of context and use it against you, they will," the first-term Republican said in an interview with the Houston Chronicle.

Cornyn said the speech gave Democrats a weapon to attack him and other Republicans who want to change Senate rules to limit the Democrats' ability to block President Bush's judicial nominees.


"I guess the other lesson I learned was not to wonder aloud on the Senate floor," Cornyn said.

In other words, the lesson he did not learn was that blaming innocent victims for the violent actions of deranged criminals is a shameful thing to do. Duly noted for the future. The Chron gives him a good editorial spanking for his misdeeds.

Kuff, would you please quote for me the language with which you contend that Sen. Cornyn "was blaming innocent victims for the violent actions of deranged criminals"?
