Remember Republican outrage queen Randy Neugebauer's insane rant at a park ranger during the shutdown?
Two days after voting for the shutdown, Texas congressman Randy Neugebauer tried to lead a group of teabaggy veterans into the World War II Memorial in Washington, DC, but it was closed, because the WWII Memorial is a federal park. When a Park Service employee tried to stop Congressman Neugebauer, whose American flag on a dowel stuck into his breast pocket gave him the appearance of a burger served in a TGI Fridays on the Fourth of July, he lost his shit on her: "How do you look at them... and deny them access?" Neugebauer said, indicating the veterans. High on the fumes of his own hypocritical outrage, he added, "The Park Service should be ashamed of themselves."
The employee responded, "I'm not ashamed."
Neugebauer replied, "You should be."
Over the weekend, Neugebauer quietly issued an apology to the Park Service:
In the letter, Neugebauer admitted that he put the park ranger in an "uncomfortable position" with a tone that was "inappropriate."
"I regret how I handled that situation, and I would like to offer you my apologies," he added, according to CNN.
Now that nobody's paying attention, it's time to try to act like a human being again. Christ, what an asshole.
