"Funeral Crashers" - the update; Knoll "apologizes"

Pennsylvania Lt. Governor Catherine Baker Knoll is sending a formal apology to the family of a dead Marine in Indiana, PA.

Last week, Knoll, without an invite, attended the funeral of Staff Sgt. Joseph Goodrich, passed out her business card and claimed that the state government was against the war on terror.

Sunday, Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell said that a written apology would be sent to Goodrich's wife. No word though, on whether the raving moonbat Lt. Governor's hand was soundly slapped or not.

Curiously, Knoll's letter of apology starts out with the words "FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE." That sounds to me like something written more for the press and general public than any kind of legitimate apology letter to the family she insulted.





If my regard for his familyÂ’s grief was seen another way, it is thoroughly regrettable. The fact that you have been offended deserves and receives my most profound apology.

Translation: "Oops. I thought you were stark raving moonbats like me. My bad..."

I don't believe her half-assed apology for a minute. She's only sorry that she got caught.

2 Are the Democrats holding training sessions on how to apologize without actually admitting you were wrong? This sounds exactly like Dick Durbin's "our military are Nazis" apology. Democrat Training Course for Apologies: Step 1: Repeat after me: 'It is regrettable that you misinterpreted what I meant and for that I apologize." What we really mean is; 'you are a bunch of morons and I'm sorry you're so stupid. Have a nice day!' Ponderous...
