Working on Our Democracy?

The shaming of our nation to the world by our administration continues.

I swear, this apology tour is really starting to irritate the hell out of me.

From Jay's post and link:

Posner said in addition to talks on freedom of religion and expression, labor rights and rule of law, officials also discussed Chinese complaints about problems with U.S. human rights, which have included crime, poverty, homelessness and racial discrimination.

He said U.S. officials did not whitewash the American record and in fact raised on its [their?] own a new immigration law in Arizona that requires police to ask about a person’s immigration status if there is suspicion the person is in the country illegally.

So now, in addition to the Democrats' smearing of SB1070, a scurrilous rant proposed for no reason other than to prop up their own power, we are now officially apologizing to the Chicoms for our backward redneck ways?

Do I have this right? To effin Red China, we're sorry we still fret about how we treat human beings?

What the hell planet did I wake up on today?
