again. With, of course, an omission. Here's, to me, a critical part:
...But there was a joke that I told, and I thought I was telling it about the older daughter being at Yankee Stadium. And it was kind of a coarse joke. There's no getting around it, but I never thought it was anybody other than the older daughter, and before the show, I checked to make sure in fact that she is of legal age, 18. Yeah. But the joke really, in and of itself, can't be defended.
So, he supposedly took pains to make sure he was crapping on the older daughter, because that would be ok. Yeah.
You know, if this dirtbag had said something like "I should never have made such a joke about the kids. Period.", something like that, I might believe he actually means it. Instead, he makes it plain that shitting on Gov. Palin's kids is fine, as long as they're at least 18. For which he should have his ass kicked. I'm guessing pressure on advertisers is what led to this 'apology', and he's trying to keep his options open to keep attacking the kids of politicians he doesn't like while still playing "I'm apologizing, so leave me alone now." This is a vile piece of work, and he shouldn't get away with it.
