What or who the hell got a hold of Tony Norman?
About two months ago, Tony wrote an article criticizing Rick Santorum’s use of his children in his political ads and in doing so Tony branded Ricky’s kids with some nicknames including “Big Lisp.”
Today, two months later, Tony apologized, sort of, by writing:
In criticizing the senator for dragging his kids into one of the most acrimonious Senate races in the country, I may have stepped over the line by giving nicknames to his six kids.
Had I that column to do over again, I’d make the same points minus the gratuitous insults. Those were unnecessary. Sometimes, I’m just evil. Ask my wife.
I am never shocked by anything Tony Norman writes, mostly because I can’t understand a damn thing Tony Norman writes. He’s always grammatically correct … always has proper sentence structure, yet still manages to be one of the most incomprehensible columnists I read. He uses 60 words when 6 would suffice.
Independent Counsel Ken Starr’s prurient narrative of oral fixations in the Oval Office created enough of an illusion of moral probity on the part of the GOP to put the Democrats on the defensive for years.
I mean, I understand what he just wrote, but still: verbose.
That said, I am shocked that he actually apologized, even if it took him two months to do it and even if he said he MAY have gone too far. Tony Norman is NOT the type to apologize for his writings, ever, so I can only assume there are some unsavory photos of Tony in the hands of some republican who has resorted to blackmailing him into publicly taking back his words.
I’m guessing they are photos of him working the phones in Melissa Hart’s campaign office.
