4. Don't write that appology.
If you don't disagree with what you said, and you said nothing unjust or needlessly offensive or untrue, then there is no reason to apologize.

5. She should write a lame apology
the way Republicans do when they get caught doing something actually wrong... Perhaps something along the lines of, "I'm sorry if anyone was offended by my observation."

6. Brownback has proved her correct.
Therefore no apology should be necessary.

7. Shawnee Mission East High School
Shawnee Mission East High School is the same one Thomas Frank graduated from. You know- the author of "What's the Matter with Kansas". Sounds like they turn out some fine students there.
