Sorry?

RNC Chair Michael Steele is done with being sorry.

The era of apologizing for Republican mistakes of the past is now officially over. It is done.

When did they ever apologize in the first place?

If, as Eric Kleefeld reports, he means this — “Tonight, we tell America: we know the past, we know we did wrong. My bad.” — then it doesn’t feed the bulldog. There’s more to an apology than just saying it; it means realizing what you’ve done, making amends and promising never to do it again. So far all they’ve done is just keep up with the same old crap with no signs of changing.

If you don’t mean it, don’t bother.
