Roskam's Cut and Running-Off at the Mouth is Going Nationwide

Nationally syndicated columnist Molly Ivins addresses Roskam's cut and run allegations:
Oh dear. I'm sure he didn't mean it. In Illinois' 6th Congressional District, long represented by Henry Hyde, Republican candidate Peter Roskam accused his Democratic opponent Tammy Duckworth of planning to "cut and run" on Iraq.

Duckworth is a former Army major and chopper pilot, who lost both legs in Iraq after her helicopter got hit by an RPG. "I just could not believe he would say that to me," said Duckworth, who walks on artificial legs and uses a cane. Every election cycle produces some wincers, but how do you apologize for that one?
Of course the answer is that Creepy Pete hasn't even tried to apologize for what he said. Instead he is doing his level best to cut and run from his statement.
