Seriously? I think the "apology" is worse than the slur.

Is this really what an apology equals these days?

And the apology is:
"This was a jumbled and often inaudible recording of a private conversation. At times our language was salty. We apologize to Ms. Whitman and anyone who may have been offended,"
Really?  That's the best you got?  Let's take this "apology" apart piece by piece.  Lest we all be confused and believe that a Democrat could actually take personal responsibility for their actions/words.

This was a jumbled and often inaudible recording

Regular English:
You couldn't have heard what you think you heard, because the recording was so poor.  Maybe the person was saying she's a poor.... yeah that's the ticket....... a poor. (to quote a bad 80's movie)

Demspeak :
of a private conversation.

Regular English:Nobody should be listening.  The person should have deleted this message on his machine immediately, Clearly Jerry Brown did not know he was being recorded (and it may be illegal we're looking into it) and cannot be expected to stay on message all the time.

Demspeak :At times our language was salty.
Regular English:
Most of the time our language is salty.  We are a highschool locker room.

Demspeak :
We apologize to Ms. Whitman and anyone who may have been offended.
Regular English:
We do not actually apologize, for we have done nothing wrong.  It is you, who thinks you deserve an apology, who is in the wrong.  Rich white people cannot for any reason get offended.

Just watch the news cycle, I can guarantee you the Republicans will come out with their faces flush to the ground over the use of the term "hicky" in the casting call for the West Virgina Political ad.  That will be an actual apology.
