“Sorry I’m so fabulous”

Nope, still not getting it.

Boebert takes another stab at “apologizing” and fails again for the same reason – the classic mistake of framing the behavior one is “apologizing” for as lovably passionate or eccentric or too intense or whatever the self-flattery organ comes up with.

See, this is the thing: if you do something wrong, you can’t apologize by telling us you did it because you’re so awesome. That doesn’t work. We can all see that you’re trying to convince us that you’re a fabulous person instead of apologizing.

In an interview on Sunday with the conservative One America News Network, the far-right Colorado congresswoman attributed the behavior – recorded on security camera footage – to what she described as her being “maybe overtly animated”.

Yeah that’s cute, Loz, but it won’t fly. You were being loud and rude and intrusive, you were vaping, you were dry-humping the guy next to you. That’s not being “animated,” it’s being a noisy obnoxious crude brat spoiling other people’s theater experience.

“I was laughing, I was singing, having a fantastic time, was told to kinda settle it down a little bit, which I did, but then, my next slip up was taking a picture,” she told the network about her date a week earlier. “I was a little too eccentric … I’m on the edge of a lot of things.”

More self-flattery.

It’s so basic. Never combine an apology with self-flattery. Never. Self-flattery simply cancels out the apology, and adds a new layer of conceit and self-serving.
