He should resign.

He's sorry people were not smart enough to understand his nuance.

Did he apologize for his "botched joke" again, or did he apologize for demeaning the troops?

We'd all know the exact words if he had held a press conference to apologize. Nothing less is unacceptable.

Let us see if it is a real apology. Either way, Kerry's stupid comment changed the focus in the GOPs favor.

Next: Why did it take 48 hours of bipartisan media and military outrage for him to take this obvious step?

Also: How sincere could he be, since yesterday he said "I apologize to no one."

Finally, if true, it sure makes Silent Bob Casey look like a complete chump.

Here's the definition of an apology:

"I am sorry for what I said." There is no qualification, no buts, just "I'm sorry."

Did Mr. Kerry do that?

..talkling about his interview with Imus this morning.

Imus tells him to "Stop it, Go Home, Ride your bike, Windsurf, Just Stop It"

I think the Imus interview with Lurch is up on MSNBC site.

Apologized for bad joke, for getting joke wrong. ..that's it.

Give him a break - it took him overnight to concede the 2004 race. He's really slow, you know.

Since he could never write a REAL apology, it only took him 24 hours to find a 'wordsmith' to do it for him.

Darn, the MSM will now let this story fade away. That's too bad because it so ACCURATELY HIGHLIGHTS the utter contempt and disdain that the democrats have for our military men and women and their efforts in Iraq.

Doug, are you sure that KFI isn't parsing? I heard the same thing on another station, and they claimed that his words apologizing for messing up the joke was an apology to the troops.
