Two years after the Great Outpouring of SorrinessSalon’s Gary Kumbaya Kamiya wants Americans to get down on their knees:

Protest marches mean little now. Anger can be expressed on Nov. 7. But we need to express our shame.

I would like to propose a national day of apology. On this day, all Americans, those who supported the war and those who did not, will come together without rancor and apologize to the Iraqi people for what we have done. It will be a day without politics, without anger, maybe even without words. A day simply to say we’re sorry. And to say it, figuratively or literally, on our knees.

To the people of Iraq, from one American: Baqiya ib hayatkum. Akhir il ahzan.

Republican candidates in close races might consider quoting Kamiya in their speeches. He could be a last-minute October surprise.
