Apologize First… and Move On

The verbal fracas that erupted on the floor of the Colorado House of Representatives a couple days ago has made the Drudge Report. The Rocky Mountain News speaks common sense when it calls on both Rep. Bill Cadman (R – Colorado Springs) and Rep. Val Vigil (D – Thornton) to apologize rather than waiting for the other to step forward. I don’t know what Vigil said to provoke Cadman’s response, but neither acted appropriately. And I hope Cadman has already or will soon take the high ground, showing the good grace to apologize first.

There are plenty of important issues the Republicans need to stand up and fight for during this legislative session (have you looked at some of those awful bills?). Let’s not allow the personal squabbles to get in the way.
