Sometimes we have to say that we're sorry

 I realize that I have been in error.  I’ve committed a terrible lapse in personal moral behavior, and I have to apologize for every negative thing that I have ever said about Dick Cheney, the former Vice President of the United States of America. 

It has become clear to us from many of his recent statements, that we who are rational beings have criticized Mr. Cheney by holding him responsible for his statements, actions, and positions on current events.  Although Mr. Cheney undoubtedly took advantage of his powerful position to commit terrible transgressions against humanity; we must not hold him responsible nor judge him by our simple moral standards.  This would be as ridiculous as holding a 10 year old deranged child who has killed his parents, his siblings, and all of his childhood friends in a paroxysm of glorious self delusional drama.  That would be wrong.  We should never judge nor punish those individuals who are incapable of discerning good from evil.  

I have been insensitive in my judgments about Mr. Cheney.  I regret that I have lacked compassion in my past statements about him.  I sincerely apologize for my short comings.   I can only hope that you will all join me in this sincere change in our behavior towards this poor man.  I believe that he needs our love and understanding far more than any other human being on earth.  He doesn't deserve it, he just needs it.
