Hotline Bonus Quote

April 19, 2011

As we've noted on this blog, former Rep. Ed Case (D-Hawaii) recently apologized to Sen. Daniel Inouye (D). Case is running for the Senate in 2012 for the second time; he ran against Sen. Daniel Akaka (D) in 2006, and found himself opposite Inouye, who backed Akaka.

In an interview with Honolulu Civil Beat, Inouye discusses his relationship with Case. When he's asked if it has healed, Inouye says, "Well he came to see me and, you know, I let bygones by [sic] bygones. But I said something like, 'When I get agitated and irritated, I might act up.' After all, I'm human, right? I can take a few blows. I'll turn the other cheek. But I always remind myself there was only [one] person qualified to be strung up on the cross. And I'm not the one."
