Yesterday Mr. Bashir went on the air at the lowest-rated show on the network, his own, to issue this apology to Mrs. Palin:
If you don't want to watch this British douchebrain's apology, here is a little bit of what he said:
"I wanted to take this opportunity to say sorry to Mrs. Palin, and to also offer an unreserved apology to her friends and family, her supporters, our viewers, anyone who heard what I said. My words were wholly unacceptable. They were neither accurate or fair.
Really?! You think?!
Yes, did you really think that Mrs. Palin was referencing slavery in the context of the slavery that plagued this nation for one and a half centuries?
It is not for me to accept the apology from Mr. Bashir or not. That is up to Mrs. Palin. But I do believe she will if she has not already.
The lesson here is that all of us, left or right, conservative or liberal, Democrat or Republican can learn to disagree without being disagreeable.
Hopefully the apology from Mr. Bashir is a start.
