David Wu Apologizes for the Part of the Story No One Cared About

Perhaps confused by the Christopher Lee photo episode a few weeks ago, Rep. David Wu apologized yesterday on “Good Morning America” for emailing staff Halloween pictures of him dressed as a tiger last fall. Unless it’s a very different tiger suit than the kind I’m imagining (or unless he was dressed not as a tiger, but as Tiger), it doesn’t seem like that was the thing he needed to address on national television.

Because setting aside the Halloween pictures, there’s still the matter of:

Next to all that, apologizing for the Halloween photos is like your teenage son throwing an out-of-control bash that culminates in a Snickers-and-deep-fryer incident that burns down the house, and then apologizing for not watering the plants while you were gone.

UPDATE: And now an Oregon newspaper is calling for Wu to resign.
