Famous apologies in history

Tim Profitt -- the former Rand Paul volunteer who stomped on the head of a MoveOn activist -- told told local CBS station WKYT that he wants an apology from the woman he stomped. Because she hurt his back with her face as he was stomping on it, apparently (?!).

And in other news, Bill Clinton demands an apology from Monica Lewinsky for enticing him into having sex with her, and the Nazi Party demands an apology from the Jewish race for calling them racists, and Roman Polanski demands an apology from Samantha Gailey for his rape of her when she was 13 years old, and... Err. Alrighty, then!

  1. At least he's been abandoned by his former employers. I was afraid that not only did he want an apology, but that he wasn't the only one.

  2. This kind of "logic" is hardly even a joke. In the early '90s, a protester laid down on the railroad tracks. I forget what he was protesting; shipment of nuclear waste products I think. The train was unable to stop soon enough and the protester had both of his legs cut off.

    The train engineer filed a lawsuit against the protester, because of the emotional distress he went through at being unable to stop the train on time.

    The protester had the same name as one of the Beach Boys; I forget which one.
