Missouri Rep apologized for Amy Winehouse post

Missouri Congressmen Billy Long, Republican (a big surprise) compared Amy Winehouse’s death to the Congressional budget…too soon?

Republican Billy Long posted a Twitter message Monday saying: “No one could reach #AmyWinehouse before it was too late. Can anyone reach Washington before it’s too late? Both addicted — same fate???”

Long says he thinks spending more than is collected also is an addiction. He told the Springfield News-Leader he meant no disrespect to Winehouse and apologized if anyone was offended.

Politicians are like Tom Cruise – it’s just better for everyone if they have a script.
