From the PoliticoMSNBC host Martin Bashir apologized Monday for remarks he recently made about Sarah Palin, including the suggestion that she should eat feces.
“Last Friday, on this broadcast, I made some comments which were deeply offensive and directed at Governor Sarah Palin,” he said during his show on Monday." 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, and anyone who may have heard what I said."
“My words were wholly unacceptable,” he continued. “They were neither accurate, nor fair. They were unworthy of anyone who would claim to have an interest in politics, and they have brought shame upon my friends and colleagues at this network, none of whom were responsible for the things that I said. And at a place where we try every day to elevate political discourse and to focus on issues that matter to all of us.”
Glad that he is man enough to make an apology. If you would like to watch the entire apology from start to finish, you can see it at MSNBC.

Again, my comment is that I’m glad he was man enough to come out and give a really good, heartfelt apology. I’m sure his conscience was bothering him all weekend.
