The art of the nonapology is still alive
I see the Washington State University professor(s) involved in the fracas with the College Republicans have learned the art of nonapologies á la John Kerry very well. They are not sorry they did it. They are only sorry over the way it turned out.
From what I read in the newspaper, they didn’t apologize at all. They need some remedial training. Let’s try doing it right and repeat after me: “The other day out on the Glenn Terrell Mall I made a fool of myself. I had anger in my heart and I shouldn’t have. It was immature of me and I was wrong on that count. To make matters worse I acted out on that anger and said and did some things beneath the dignity of my profession. I am ashamed of myself and I am humbly asking the forgiveness of all those I offended. I am also asking those students who witnessed my irresponsibility to not emulate my actions.”
