Rep. Virginia Foxx, a name unknown to many before she referred to the hate crime element of Matthew Shepard’s death “a hoax,” has been backtracking ever since she uttered those unfortunate comments on the House floor. (And from the way she spit out the words, the statement appeared to be hers alone, and not something she can blame on a staffer’s prepared remarks.) Her peers were aghast; “she should be ashamed,” said Georgia’s Rep. John Lewis. Foxx’s first make-good tactic was blaming the media for her ignorance, something that just doesn’t fly when there’s something called THE GOOGLE. And Matthew’s mom Judy, rightly so, did not accept Foxx’s sorrow, saying she the congresswoman was apologizing for semantics, but not her message. Well, Foxx hopes to change that.
We’re assuming. Rep. Foxx sent Judy a personal apology letter, though nobody’s saying what was actually written. More lip service?
I would like to see Virginia Foxx slapped in the face by Judy Shepard live on TV!
I second that motion – is there a third?
fourth – preferably with a large plate of bull shit, since that’s evidently most of what comes out of her mouth.
I’d rather see her tied to a fence and beaten to death.
No, no, beaten nearly to death and left for dead tied to a fence for 18 hours… You know, to be fair.
@osocubano and @jrd:
Now, let’s not drop to their level. They’ll make something over it if we behave just as barbarically as they do.
I would like to see a special gay rights edition of Celebrity Boxing, though. I bet Judy could take Virginia out in three rounds or less.
She could volunteer to spend some time talking with Judy Shepard in person about how the hate crime against her son affected her life and the lives of others. She may just be *politically* contrite enough to do so.
Oh, I wouldn’t beat her to death, I’m just saying I’d like to see her beaten to death…
I think if she is really sorry (sure) she should do volunteer work at a Gay & Lesbian anti violence organization. I hope Judy puts the screws to her.
