Steele Apologizes

Our long national nightmare is over. I hope.

My intent was not to go after Rush I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh, Steele said in a telephone interview. I was maybe a little bit inarticulate. There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership.

...

I went back at that tape and I realized words that I said werent what I was thinking, Steele said. "It was one of those things where I thinking I was saying one thing, and it came out differently. What I was trying to say was a lot of people want to make Rush the scapegoat, the bogeyman, and hes not."

...

He brings a very important message to the American people to wake up and pay attention to what the administration is doing," Steele said. "Number two, there are those out there who want to look at what hes saying as incendiary and divisive and ugly. Thats what I was trying to say. It didnt come out that way. He does what he does best, which is provoke: He provokes thought, he provokes the left. And theyre clearly the ones who are most excited about him.

Asked if he planned to apologize, Steele said: I wasnt trying to offend anybody. So, yeah, if hes offended, Id say: Look, Im not in the business of hurting peoples feelings here. My job is to try to bring us all together.

Thanks to this moron.
