Debit Where Debit Is Due

Wow! The topic of my last post was Mike Huckabee's demonstration of the proper way to make an apology for a tasteless and thoughtless remark implicating violence towards Barack Obama. Today we have Hillary Clinton making an utterly reprehensible remark about the assassination of a presidential candidate in June. Unlike Huckabee who was reacting to a sudden noise at a speech, Clinton has clearly been thinking about this for months since she made similar remarks to Time magazine back in March. Unlike Huckabee, who promptly apologized "that my comments were offensive," Clinton made some vague rambling remarks that hardly qualify as an apology followed by statements by her campaign that she regretted that her remarks were misunderstood.
