But he wants a mulligan.
But Tom he said he was sorry didn't he. That means we're supposed to fuggedaboutit.
But which one is he?

A presidential candiadte stupidly misspoke in a private conversation n and wanted a mulligan also.
While we are a country founded on some basic religious principles it seems forgivemeness and the desire for redemption are no longer included.
I would be more concerned with the recent abortion law issue in Virginia and his response than a 35 year old picture , of stupidity.
Let's not forget ,evidently he likes beer.
Hypocracy the shared political trait ,thereis enough on both sides of aisle.
A magnanimous comment, Bruce, well played to refrain from the piling on!
We can readily imagine how extensive the piling on would be if the governor were a Republican. Or Trump.
Are there any images of the Racist-in-Chief in blackface or Klan robes?
We'd have seen them by now.
Curious that these yearbook images didn't surface during the Virginia election campaign, when Northam portrayed his perfectly decent opponent as a racist.
He was saluted by such civil rights stalwarts as Kamala Harris, who tweeted this: Congratulations to @RalphNortham and his team for showing that Virginia won’t stand for hatred and bigotry.
Now of course she wants him to resign. Good for her! She won't get fooled again.
And to be truly fair, this photo is from 1984, when the icon of the Democrats was Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, past Grand Kleagle of the KKK. So the 25-year-old Northam (no mere youth, eh?) had his role model.
On the late-term abortion defense made by Northam, that's where I opt for magnanimity. I do think the spin by the New York Times is more believable than the interpretation that he supports infanticide:
Asked in the interview about a proposal to allow abortion in the final trimester to protect the health of the mother, the governor said late-term abortions would be permissible in cases of severe deformities or nonviable fetuses, and described a situation in which such an infant would be delivered, and then a “discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”
Justin Fairfax will become governor. Now, here's a seriously impressive guy.
Tom c, I must have missed your thread about Michael Ertel. Could you post a link to it, please?
Hey Kancho player Michael resigned. Oops sorry I forgot you've got a problem with reading comprehension.
I rarely take pleasure in another man's misfortune - but his role in the infanticide legislation calls for much worse than resigning in shame.
Hey Amoling, you stupid tool, did you read what I wrote? Who’s got the comprehension problem?
Thank you mainemom.
You're the ass in this one. Tom didn't have a thread on Michael. Go back to playing Kancho
If you're Kavanaugh, a pic like this makes you evil for life.
If you're a leftist...
You're the ass in this one. Tom didn't have a thread on Michael
Matt, probably because he can't get a date, was indirectly accusing me of supposed hypocrisy because I mentioned the Democrat, but not the Republican.
In order to satisfy the dateless Matt, I have added a thread about the Republican as well.
Get it now, Amoling? Not the sharpest tool in the shed, are you?
Tom, thanks for further proving my point. If you think a guy posing as a black Katrina victim is a “foolish faux pas,” you might have some issues yourself...
Well, at least they aren't dating issues.
mattzine is a tool...plain and simple.
they don't have an edge, so its fair to call them dull.
Sharper than you Kancho
Well the news is, he now denies it’s him in the photo.
Though that same year, he wore blackface to dress up as Michael Jackson (who himself became whiter over the years).
Before you know it, he'll prove that he led the campus revolt against such shameful shenanigans.....
Obviously he's had time to consult with a DNC lawyer...
Another interesting tidbit is that he apparently had a curious nickname while in college. "coonman" doesn't like his picture now portraying as the racist that he is. Also his degree in pediatric medicine will not be worth much since he now backs infanticide.
Woah stop it....The picture was just all in good fun ,he hadn’t been to a real KK K meeting in years.
I am getting a little concerned with the new emphasis on "racism" and accusations of such here on AMG.
I have found we , my wife and I have in our possession and significant quanity of BLACK TEA !
Does this make us racists ?
Keeping in mind we pour boiling water over it and keep it in dark places segregated from other things.
You gotta love it ,his nickname was coon man..
Bruce...you need to worry about the bigot tea the usual suspects on AMG brew up as their elixir and tongue looser.
I don't think you'll find it in the normal grocery stores; they buy it in "special places" or from "special friends" for medicinal purposes only. From, as the saying goes, "undocumented pharmacists."
I will do that .
After thinking about this, I suspect that the picture of the blackface guy and the KKK garbed persons may well be a party photo of Northam and his date for the event. Look at the difference in height and torso size. It even looks like he might have his arm around her.
Not to mention that he already copped to doing black face for a Michael Jackson routine.
Makes perfect sense under the circumstances, as does his nickname, which ties in perfectly.
Mel give the guy a break ,he hasn’t been to real KKK meeting in years.
I suppose there's a way for Virginia Dems to get out of the scandal without looking like hypocrites or ceding the governor's office to the Republican speaker of the House.
Make the AG quit first.
Replace him with Dem.
Then force the Gov and Lt gov to quit.
Replace the governor with the newly installed AG.
I believe mainemom has found the replacement for the Abbott and Costello ,"Whose on first" routine.
I think mom's got the exact plan that will be executed. The assistant AG is female, afro-american, and obviously D.
Why is that term used at all. How many were ever African?
