If you can bring yourself to slog through his insufferable pity party of a speech, you'll reach an inescapable conclusion: Charlie is not the least bit sorry for his actions. He attributes the chamber's vote to the prevailing "political climate" (apparently people these days don't much care for elected officials who break the very tax laws they impose on the rest of us), and defiantly assures the nation that he's "not going to be judged by this Congress." At which point, the Congress that had literally just judged him leapt to its feet and applauded his "courage," or whatever. What a pathetic farse.
