Chris Reichert, now nationally infamous for throwing dollar bills at the guy with Parkinson's, is quoted in the Columbus, Ohio, Dispatch, as feeling genuinely bad about his behavior:
In his first comments on an incident that went viral across the Internet and was repeatedly played on cable television news shows, Reichert said he is sorry about his confrontation with Robert A. Letcher, 60, of the North Side. Letcher, a former nuclear engineer who suffers from Parkinson's, was verbally attacked as he sat before anti-health care demonstrators in front of Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy's district office last week.
Read the whole thing here. I hope Reichert's for real and not just trying to make the heat go away. This screaming and browbeating of people we disagree with has become an ugly characteristic of modern politics. Apparently it's a good dodge for some politicians, calling forth donations from people who like their politicians swinish.
