28. It's his "non-apology" apology that bothers me the most.
From what I recall from the article I read, he said, "I'm sorry for the misunderstanding." I think he should have said, "It was a lame attempt at humor -- an utterly stupid thing to say, not at all, in fact, what I was thinking, and I'm very sorry."

When things like this happen, I try to imagine what my response would be if the person in question was a Democrat. It doesn't make the infraction okay but it causes me to stop short of projecting the person's transgression upon the entire party.
