"That was Barack Obama. He just tripped off a chair. He's getting ready to speak and somebody aimed a gun at him and he -- he dove for the floor."disgusting. huckabee later "apologized" by saying,
"During my speech at the NRA, a loud noise backstage that sounded like a chair falling distracted the crowd and interrupted my speech. I made an offhand remark that was in no way intended to offend or disparage Sen. Obama. I apologize that my comments were offensive. That was never my intention."but being sorry that your comments were offensive is fundamentally different from being sorry that you made them. "i'm sorry you're upset" is not "i'm sorry that i made such a horrendous, inappropriate, unfunny comment. i am ashamed of myself and i apologize for my actions."
i don't like fake apologies. i dislike jokes-that-actually-seem-more-like-fantasies about assassinating young, hopeful politicans even more. i'm truly disgusted.
