Another Political Figure Apologizes for Getting Caught

Jackson's explanation, like his comment, is absurd :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Mary Mitchell Why is it that they always apologize saying they are sorry if they hurt anyone's feelings?

I am sure Jackson is sorry his comments came to light. (Anyone sitting in front of a microphone in this day and age - in a TV studio - should never assume that they are off the record.) But did he mean what he said?

Maybe now Jackson can understand how all of the "bitter folks" feel about Obama talking us down about clinging to our guns and our religion.

If Obama is "talking down" to any group - blacks, typical white people, bitter gun owners - that demonstrates that elitism we were talking about a few months back. He knows better than everyone, and he is going to tell you how it should be. Not exactly the attitude I want in public servants.
