Rep. Bob Ney got 30 months in prison in a federal bribery investigation. He said the bottle made me do it. Yeah, right.
Actually, Mr. Convicted Felon, the bottle didn’t make you do. You made yourself do it. While you say you accept full responsibility for your actions, it’s clear you don’t, since you blame it on alcoholism.
I’m tired of the slippery evasion of “The Mel Gibson Defense.” The best way to get sober and stay sober is to admit what you’ve done, make it right, get on with your life, and don’t drink or use no matter what.
Been there, done that.
