The predictaable Gyllenhaal backlaash begins

City councilman Tony Avella is first in line to grandstand get his naame in the paaper, demaanding an apology for Maggie Gyllenhaal's 9/11 comments.
"I think it's awful what she said, that somehow we as Americans are responsible for the attacks," said Councilman Tony Avella, who represents District 19 in Queens...

Avella, in a telephone interview, said he was "appalled" by Gyllenhaal's comments, which he called "unconscionable," and demanded a public apology.

"Thousands of lives were lost -- innocent victims," Avella said. "Approaching the four-year anniversary of the attacks we are still dealing with their ramifications. The fact that she could be so callous is horrendous. Shame on her. She really owes every New Yorker an apology."
Well, at least he's not shamelessly hogging the spotlight claiming to stand up for 9/11 victims.
