Fowler apologizes, sort of

The former head of the DNC has apologized for his remarks chuckling about Hurricane Gustav and how it shows that God is on the Democrats’ side.

Well, sort of. While “apologizing” he tries to blame his remarks on someone else who’s not even involved:

Don Fowler, who was DNC chairman from 1995-1996, said he was just mimicking Rev. Jerry Falwell when he was caught on tape during a flight from Denver to North Carolina Friday. . .

“This is a point of national concern. I think everybody of good will has great empathy and sympathy for people in New Orleans,” Fowler said. “Most religious people are praying for people in New Orleans. There is no political connotation to this whatsoever. This was just poking fun at Jerry Falwell and the nonsensical thing he had said several years ago.”

What a weasel.
