At least Klingons aren't rapists

Recall in 2004 what David Wu said about the college attempted rape accusations where it was alleged that he attacked a girl and "tried to stifle her screams with a pillow."

This is what he said at the time:
"Twenty-eight years ago, I had a two-year romantic relationship with a fellow college student that ended with inexcusable behavior on my part," Wu's statement said. "As a 21-year-old, I hurt someone I cared very much about. I take full responsibility for my actions and I am very sorry."

While I'm glad to hear that Wu thought rape was "inexcusable" I still don't like him as a congressman so I've been thinking of some good anti-Wu catch phrases to put on bumper stickers:

David Wu: stop holding a pillow over the face of the 1st congressional district while we scream for help

David Wu: you ended your college relationship by trying to rape someone, don't do the same to us during your lame duck session

David Wu: just because Clinton was credibly accused of rape and still is politically viable doesn't mean that you are too

David Wu: stop attempting to rape our constitution

David Wu: you didn't take "no" for an answer when it came to sex but you can't hold a pillow over our votes

David Wu: I'm more worried about rapists than Klingons

David Wu: opposes the 2nd amendment because it allows rape victims to fight back

David Wu: supporting emergency contraception for rape victims because he doesn't want to worry about child support

Daniel, I don't like it when your anonymous commenters judge you for your past behavior without regard to the changes you've made in your life. But in light of how often it happens, I'm surprised to see you doing the same thing, and not even to make a political point, but to make a joke.

As a reader, this post doesn't tell me anything substantive about why I should or shouldn't support David Wu or his policy positions. It only asks me to form a facile opinion about the personal character of a man whom neither of us have met. You're probably going to tell me I should have a sense of humor, but I find this to be a pathetic and bluntly hypocritical addition to the national conversation.

In the first place, Daniel, Wu did not rape anyone; he is not a rapist. In the second place, he went on to become a successful attorney and a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.

What is it you do again?

The question should be: Exactly, how many jobs has David Wu created in Oregon?

Take out the trash day Nov. 2, 2010!!!

Probably no more than his Republican counterparts, Anon. Politicians, despite their rhetoric and regardless of party affiliation, do not "create jobs." That's the private sector.

Kudos to Kaelri for calling it like it is. High school kids I know have more maturity and class than Miglavs does. When he trots out his sense of humor, it's like watching an inept and inexperienced stand-up comedian making an ass of himself and being booed off stage. The thing is, the comedian would at least have the good sense to be embarrassed and realize that he bombed.

That's funny Daniel.

I bet we get raped in the lame duck session. I bet we don't even get Vaseline.

That's funny Daniel.

... and in that nightclub where Michael Richards was stumbling around like an ignoramus screaming "Nigger" at the top of his lungs and while everyone else was peeling their jaws off the floor and whipping out their camera phones, old Dave would have watched in awe and said:

"That's funny, Kramer!"

Welcome to Miglavia.

Exactly right! Politicians can only do one of two things: they can create a climate that is conducive to job creation or they can create a climate that smothers job creation. And too many don't understand that fundamental truth.
