Cornyn on Fox News Sunday, 4/10/05:

I regret that my statement – part of a 30-minute speech, as you know – was taken out of context and misinterpreted to suggest some connection with these recent states of violence.

Even Chris Wallace of Fox News Sunday isn’t buying it:

Well, I don’t understand how it was misinterpreted or taken out of context. I mean, again, we could put it up. Judges are making political decisions unaccountable. And it builds up to the point where some people engage in violence. Sounds like it was precisely in context.

It was in context. Blaming it on the Democrats is nothing new. I'm just surprised he didn't blame it on his staff. Oh wait...he was on TV.
