All Apologies

Jeez. I think a formal apology should have been written by the Nifong-attackers so he wouldn't have to endure apologizing over and over and over again until he had an apology that others deemed appropriate.

The first occurred the day after the charges were dropped against the lacrosse players. Nifong issued a written apology:

"To the extent that I made judgments that ultimately proved to be incorrect, I apologize to the three students that were wrongly accused," Nifong said. "It is my sincere desire that the actions of Attorney General Cooper will serve to remedy any remaining injury that has resulted from these cases."

OH. BOY. That. is. the. lamest. apology. I. have. ever. heard.

Just in case that wasn't read in the right tone, let me add this:
<_sarcasm_>OH. BOY. That. is. the. lamest. apology. I. have. ever. heard.<_/sarcasm_>

The second "insincere" apology came some time in June. It was deemed insincere because Nifong had the nerve to state that he felt something happened in that bathroom.

Seriously, hasn't Nifong figured out that you just can't say stuff like that anymore? I read Barry Saunders' editorial and he even stated, after hearing this apology:

"I don't know about you, but when I heard him say, "I think something happened in that bathroom," I cringed and went, "Naw, homes. Don't say that -- even if you believe it.""

Finally, he was brow-beaten to offering the CORRECT apology.

"I have admitted on more than one occasion that I have made mistakes in the prosecution of these cases. For that, I sincerely apologize to Mr. Seligmann, Mr. Finnerty, Mr. Evans and to their families. It is my hope that all of us can learn from the mistakes in this case, that all of us can begin to move forward. It is my hope that we can start this process today."

BRAVO! YEAH! So much better! Woo-hoo! A *REAL* apology! Nothing at all like the previous two! Hip hip HOORAY!

Third time's a charm!!

Or is it...?
