Those wacky guys at Google!

Dang it. You beat me to it.
Time to make this thing go viral and pressure Congress to IMPEACH this douche!!!
Seems the good and honorable Congressman has come out and apologized. Sort-of. Well, mainly he blames the irate, intrusive and partisan private person on a public sidewalk.
“I have seen the video posted on several blogs. I deeply and profoundly regret my reaction and I apologize to all involved. Throughout my many years of service to the people of North Carolina, I have always tried to treat people from all viewpoints with respect. No matter how intrusive and partisan our politics can become, this does not justify a poor response. I have and I will always work to promote a civil public discourse.”
Yep. We could tell you were doing just that on the video.
