The man once tapped to represent the U.S. in that body that is designed to promote world peace and harmony has suffered an attack of Malgibsonitis.

Former UN Ambassador Andrew Young has resigned as WalMart’s chairman of Working Families for Wal-Mart, “a group created and financed by the company to trumpet its accomplishments,” according to the New York Times, after he said WalMart should try to replace mom-and-pop stores in urban areas because

“You see those are the people who have been overcharging us,” he said of the owners of the small stores, “and they sold out and moved to Florida. I think they’ve ripped off our communities enough. First it was Jews, then it was Koreans and now it’s Arabs.”

He’s baffled about where those words could have possibly come from.

“It’s against everything I ever thought in my life,” Mr. Young said.

Mel Gibson was equally baffled.

“I am in the process of understanding where those vicious words came from during that drunken display, and I am asking the Jewish community, whom I have personally offended, to help me on my journey through recovery,” [he said shortly after his arrest for drunken driving and subsequent anti-Semitic tirade.]

So I feel it’s only fitting that I make a similar admission. All those times on this blog when I called Bush an idiot or a liar are just against everything I ever thought in my life. I don’t know where such hateful words came from. I have believed in Republican principles all my life. This country would be so much better off if we just did away all that crap about equality, tolerance and fairness. To George W: I love you, man! To all of you, please forgive me and help me through my journey of recovery.
