How Not to Apologize

Lacking veracity, sincerity, awareness of wrongdoing, offer of retribution -- and not aimed at those most hurt by the original remark (whether its offense was intended or not):

Frankly I think her RFK reference was misinterpreted and the reaction overblown. But given that a huge number of people took offense, and for a variety of reasons found it ominous and hurtful and even a veiled threat, here was an opportunity for her to display true leadership skills and calm the storm. Watch how she failed.

Given all of the things throughout history which have happened in June, Hellary mentions the assassination of Bobby Kennedy? An unusually close parallel to Obama or wishful thinking or maybe instructions to the wack job racist out there?

"You guys aren't doing your job!"
That's what I hear Hellary saying!
Maybe that's just me, .... we will find out at Barak's wake.
