I Was Wrong......Sort Of

Ok so I was wrong about the South Carolina GOP lawmakers who inserted an antisemetic stereotype in their op-ed in praise of Senator Jim DeMint not apologizing for their transgression. But this is what you call the classic form of Republican apologizery.

Ulmer, the Orangeburg County chairman, said the remark was "truly in admiration for a method of bettering one's lot in life" and he meant nothing derogatory.

Added Merwin, the Bamberg County chair: "I have always abhorred in the past, and shall continue to do so in the future, anti-Semitism in any form whatsoever. I ... beg that any and all who were offended will accept my deep felt apology."

State GOP Chairwoman Karen Floyd called the comment absolutely unacceptable, but said the apologies should end the matter.

So they didn't really mean it, they always abhorred the kind of thing that they said, and nobody should say another word to them about it.

Got that?

I have no words....

  1. Their first configuration was so telling, ascribing the behavior and not the adage to ethnicity. They were virtually saying "See, this is how Jews do and DeMint does it too."

    Will these folks never learn?
