  •  The more classic "I'm sorry if you were offended" (9+ / 0-)

    . . . puts the problem squarely where it belongs - on Brownback. He's the one with the problem. It's a chance for this young woman to learn how to frame a non-apology apology. If fact, her classmates could help her. That way they will recognize a non-apology apology when they hear one. I bet they could even google up some examples. She could also let Brownback know that she had learned a valuable lesson - that is is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.
