After watching Kanye’s mea culpa, Bush seemed to have accepted the apology, saying that he “[appreciated] it.”

While Bush may have graciously forgiven West, he has a history of pulling such stunts, and being less than penitent when called out on it.

In 2006, a drunken West interrupted the MTV Europe Music Awards, letting loose with an expletive-filled rant because he didn’t receive the Best Video Award. In 2009, West rushed the stage again, irate that singer Taylor Swift was given the MTV Best Video Award, and not pop-music diva Beyonce.

The Bush-West “rap beef” may be over, but as President Obama quipped, West is still “a jackass.” It’s too late for West to take his words back and undo the damage he caused.

The “race card” gets used against conservatives time and again because it obfuscates the issue at hand and paints the conservative’s argument as the socially unacceptable option, regardless of the actual merits of the issue. West played the race card against a politician whom he disliked, without proof to back up his allegations.

It’s very gracious of Bush to forgive West, and is indicative of the caliber of the man’s character, as lesser men would have held the grudge to this day. However, that doesn’t excuse West’s transgressions, nor does it make him less of a ill-mannered lout.
