Is everyone just God-damned wusses anymore? What the hell has happened to the "This is what I believe. Take it or leave it." We're all just a bunch of apologists. So fucking weak. No one should have to apologize for saying what they believe.
Autoblog reports: Fed official apologizes for recommending imports in newsletter. We wrote about what started this as well: Buy American! Regardless Of What It Does To Environment!
Just because some dude wrote, "Hey, if you're looking to buy a new car, these here cars ain't so bad for the environment" doesn't mean you have to buy one. And you don't have to buy one just because he's your boss. Yay for (some of) Autoblog's readers for being on the same page as us.
And shame on folks for forcing an apology. But the apology didn't come from H&HS Secretary Michael Leavitt, it came from some of schmoe in the government.
